RACIAL EQUITY ACCELERATOR

Many non-profits, civic organizations, educational institutions and social impact startups are on the frontlines of addressing systemic racism. But they are traditionally disconnected from technology innovation. We are working together to apply technology innovation to end systemic racism and advance racial equity.

In collaboration with Collective Impact Network, we are unlocking new solutions across a range of racial equity focus areas by applying technology innovation (data science, AI, coding) to fast-track the solutions of influential mission-driven organizations using advanced technologies that make it possible to approach big challenges with new solutions that were not possible just a few years ago, while forming a grant pool of $10M+ across ten projects. With members of our team having been part of launching Google AI Impact Challenge and the Canada-wide Hackathon Against Covid-19, we are creating the first program of its kind on racial equity.
