Tech Accountability Coalition

If you want to advance innovation, lip service diversity, equity, and inclusion won’t cut it.

We need a shift in the technology industry that puts justice at the center. That’s the goal of the Tech Accountability Coalition.

Real equity is essential to the future of tech.

It’s not just a “nice to have” or an “HR issue.” Without true justice, the industry is not only robbing communities of the representation and access they deserve. It’s also willfully ignoring valuable ideas, possibilities, and profits.

“Companies with diverse executive teams outperform their competitors by 30-36%.”

McKinsey & Company

“76% of participants in a recent survey of potential hires said they value a diverse workforce.”

Glassdoor

“Widening the talent pool, reducing the skills gap, and creating a diverse workforce to engage the global economy are all prerequisites for successful 21st century businesses.”

The ACT Report

When we hold each other accountable, transformation is possible.

By the end of 2022, the Tech Accountability Coalition will launch an accountability framework for tech. In it, we’ll share diversity, equity, and inclusion data standards and set ambitious but attainable goals for the industry.

Built Together

This initiative is co-created in partnership with tech companies, trusted organizations from underrepresented communities, and academic institutions.

Built for Equity

Our approach lays the foundation for a standardized comparison of progress toward diversity, equity, and inclusion across the industry.

Built for the Future

Going forward, we’ll publicly release key insights to improve transparency and trust in tech, to help the industry consistently hold itself accountable to the highest standards of inclusion, and to offer a model for others to follow.

Be a part of the movement to create a culture of accountability in technology.

Our story is just beginning.

Though diversity initiatives aren’t new in the industry, after the murder of George Floyd by police in 2020, and the increasingly urgent cries for equity in the U.S. and around the world, many tech companies stepped up their efforts. But truthfully, little has changed. In October 2021, the ACT Report was published to provide a roadmap to transformation, calling on tech to align on a framework for accountability, built on clear, measurable, and actionable standards.

Inspired by that report, the Tech Accountability Coalition was born in March 2022 – from the passionate belief that tech’s systemic inequity can be course-corrected by systemic action. And that together we can make justice-based innovation the industry norm.
