About Tech London Advocates - Black Women in Tech

OUR OBJECTIVES

We are a community of black women Tech advocates of all and any level that support and empower diversity and inclusion. The aim of our group is essentially to educate, inspire, mentor and build bridges of opportunities to allow tech companies to perform better.

We advise tech companies on embedding inclusion and diversity to the DNA of their organisations and inspire black women to put themselves forward to new opportunities so they can change the dynamic in the tech space. We help organisations identify hidden bias and provide information on reducing bias and thus increase inclusivity.

To make an impact, the activities of this group will aim to run in parity of individuals. (50% black women and 50% other genders and ethnicities) Why? To change mindsets, open conversations, create new opportunities and change the status quo.

We partner with organisations in the UK, Africa, France and the USA to amplify visibility and support black women entrepreneurs in tech.

KEY ACTIVITIES

  • Events: mentoring, networking, brand presentations, inspiring stories, and exchange of ideas
  • Free support: Brand clinic designed to support tech entrepreneurs (50% of availabilities will be reserved for black women tech entrepreneurs)

Our mantra: Get comfortable getting uncomfortable
