Tech2Empower harnesses the power of technology, volunteering and collaboration to help move the needle for equality and social justice. Women have been on the frontlines of nearly every major political and social movement in American history. Women organized and led groups that fought for abolition, demanded women’s suffrage, protested for worker safety, and marched for civil rights. Today, women continue their work as movement leaders - mothers leading the charge for gun control, young women taking to the street, reproductive justice, activists pushing policy changes in the criminal justice system and speaking out for marginalized and vulnerable communities across the country. Through Tech2Empower, we connect nonprofits to experts and allies from leading tech, communications, and finance companies for workshops, hands-on training and customized project work. We stand shoulder-to-shoulder with fellow women-powered nonprofit organizations, equipping them with the tech tools they need to amplify their messages and meet their goals for social impact. .⫸ How does the program work?During Women's History Month every year, Tech2Empower USA brings together women's rights and social justice activists, representing high-impact nonprofits from diverse communities across the U.S. Through interactive learning and cross-sector collaboration, participating nonprofits and their Tech2Empower Advisors co-designed solutions for overcoming their most pressing technology challenges.
