Black ingenuity driving innovation in tech
Our origin Tech Equity Collective (TEC) is an initiative started by Google employees who rallied together in the summer of 2020 to help Black professionals grow and thrive in the tech industry.
Pausing and Reflecting
After multiple violent and racist attacks against the Black community, Google leadership committed to building sustainable equity and economic empowerment through tech.
Pushing for More
Google employees called for meaningful change, which led to the creation of Tech Equity Collective that would provide programming, resources, and opportunities for the Black community.
Building the Team
Google leaders established a team of full-time employees and volunteers to put weight behind this endeavor.
The team’s first-year focus was experimenting with new approaches and piloting a tech career training program that supported over 150 aspiring Black tech professionals.
Tech Equity Collective, an initiative started by Google, accelerates Black innovation and representation in tech by bringing together community and industry partners to create programs and experiences that lead to tangible progress of Black tech innovators.
Scaling Tech Pathways
Tech Equity Collective helps scale proven pathways into tech and create culturally-informed new pathways for aspiring Black tech professionals.
