Our Vision & Mission

Our vision is to normalise black female excellence to inspire generations in technology and beyond.

Global Tech Advocates Black Women In Tech is a multi-award winning not-for-profit global organisation, based in London, dedicated to building bridges of opportunities in tech by enabling black female talents to excel and companies to have access to black women of talent. We are a community of black women tech advocates of all levels and allies who support and empower diversity and inclusion.

Our mission is to inspire, support, and connect the tech sphere to allow more black women to excel and tech companies to perform better through diversity & inclusion. We support Black women through networking events in person and online, guides, masterclasses with experts and leaders, sharing opportunities, our annual festival, creative artwork, partnerships with companies to offer job roles and our book publication: The Voices In The Shadow.

We partner with companies to improve diversity at the junior to board level. We advise tech companies on embedding inclusion and diversity into the DNA of their organisations. We elevate black women to inspire black women and young black girls to put themselves forward to new opportunities so they can change the dynamic in the tech space. We help organisations identify hidden biases and provide information on reducing prejudice and thus inclusive.
