Our Tech2Empower initiative gets technology tools and training to women's rights and social justice leaders and their organizations to help accelerate and amplify their important work. 

Tech2Empower brings together nonprofit leaders to connect, collaborate and access the latest technology and communications tools, training and project-based support.  We engage advisors from leading companies, as allies, and to provide expertise, tech tools and in-person and virtual project support and training for women's rights and social justice leaders. The advisors, in turn, learn from the leaders and contribute to moving the needle for women and girls, and their communities.

With new tools, skills and allies, organizations accelerate their work on critical issues such as reproductive rights and justice, gender-based violence and sexual assault, legal rights, discrimination and racism, LGBTQIA rights, access to education, political participation, and economic opportunity. 

In March 2019, we’ll bring together women's rights and social justice activists from organizations across the United States for tech training, project work and community-building for three days in San Francisco. At the core of Tech2Empower USA is a project-based hackathon - Impact Challenge for Women's Rights and Social Justice - to be held on March 8th, International Women’s Day.  

During the Impact Challenge, teams of activists and tech volunteers will roll up their sleeves and undertake projects to advance initiatives focused on immigration, reproductive, and LGBTQIA rights, women's leadership, health and equity, racial justice, voter rights and to combat violence against women.

Participating activists and their organizations are then invited to apply for the Tech2Empower Impact Fellowship: 2 months of additional coaching, training and seed funding to further advance their social justice impact projects. 

The application for women's rights and social justice nonprofit organizations interested in participating in Tech2Empower USA 2019: Impact Challenge for Women's Rights and Social Justice is now closed.
