Wade, a landmark ruling that enabled the right of an abortion to people around the nation. brings together allies and champions across every sector to advance intersectional gender equity in technology. The technologists we support are also people impacted by targeted oppressive and unjust laws including laws that restrict reproductive rights. Not only do we empower technologists through our year-long programming but, we also advocate for better systemic solutions for the workforce and for their humanity. 

In response to the Supreme Court ruling, we are joining to elevate the calls to action of our social justice colleagues and community partners.

  • Support and donate to your local Planned Parenthood, independent abortion clinics, and abortion funds.
