About Us
WE STRIVE TO PROVIDE A PLATFORM FOR GROWTH OF AFRICAN AMERICANS IN TECHNOLOGY

All about comunity

Established in May of 2012, Technologists of Color is a passionate collection of professionals from the information technology arena. We understand the influence of technology on everything from the food we eat to the way we spend money. We want to make sure that African-Americans are among our nation’s technology influencers and policy decision-makers.

 

The community we form is committed to building the African American tech community in Atlanta. We share skills and knowledge to support and assist in the advancement of African Americans in information technology. Our primary goal is to connect tech professionals, entrepreneurs, “newbies” as well as “career changers” so that they can share knowledge,

 

resources and opportunities. We strive to inform and educate the community to help increase African American participation in this rapidly growing world of technology. ToC has steadily grown to become a valued voice in the African-American technology scene – and that growth is only just beginning.

CONNECT

To build a strong and cohesive community of African American technologists we first bring together professionals, entrepreneurs and students alike.

INFORM

In order to take advantage of the vast amount of opportunity in the technology industry, we help to make the community aware that these opportunities exist; so that it can move to meet the demand.

TEACH

To help address the shortage for technology professionals, we help to create a pipeline of young technologists by training them on the technologies highest in demand.

MOBILIZE

We provide opportunities for technology professionals to reach back and contribute their expertise to the education of those looking to grow in the industry.
