The present realities of social injustice in the US have shined a light on the lack of diversity and equity in the technology sector and on the inequitable access to technology (broadband, computers, affordable connectivity, etc.) 

The Alliance is committed to addressing these inequities by leading the charge in promoting diversity and equity in the workforce and supporting efforts to make technology more accessible to all people in New Hampshire. The technology sector in New Hampshire represents more than 13% of the state’s GDP, this significant contribution to the economy positions the sector to be able to institute meaningful change. This cannot be achieved without a thoughtful, sustainable, and transformational strategy and vision for diversity, equity and inclusion within our sector and the state.  After several meetings and roundtable discussions the Alliance concluded that a dedicated staff resource would be the best way to focus on gathering data, relationship building within underserved communities, strategy development, goal setting and development of an implementation roadmap to promote diversity, equity and inclusion within the sector. 

Our Goal Is $200,000

This will cover personnel expenses for two years.

The Alliance’s 501c3 charitable Supporting Organization called the NH Tech Foundation has secured an initial commitment for $10,000 per year or two years. Donations to the foundation in support of this effort are tax deductible.
