EBBC has co-founded The TechEquity Collaborative as a membership organization working to build an inclusive, representative and community-oriented tech economy in Oakland and the East Bay.
The TechEquity Collaborative:
- Works with tech companies to create commitments that reinforce a community-oriented set of values, and supports those companies to achieve their commitments.
- Organizes tech workers to participate positively in the region by offering educational programing on important issues and by creating opportunities for contributing skills, mentoring, and/or supporting community organizations.
- Aggregates the political power of the tech community to support policies that encourage economic resiliency and mitigate displacement and gentrification.
