We believe everyone living in the United States of America should benefit from the rapid advancements we have seen in innovation industries. That means ensuring that all people have safe, meaningful, affordable, and reliable access to broadband Internet and the digital resources that bring it to life. It also means supporting Latinxs and others building careers in the innovation industry, at every stage of their career, and keeping the lived experiences of marginalized communities front and center in our understanding of the impacts of new policies and innovation.
We understand that advances in technology are not limited to the “tech industry.” Innovations and advancements are transforming a wide swath of the world economy, from media, entertainment to pharmaceuticals and communications and our approach to technology is as broad as its impact on our lives. We go beyond simply establishing a position on technology developments and associated policies; instead we advocate at the speed of innovation by maintaining a thought leadership role inside the innovation industry itself, focused on advocating for critical policy changes and helping stakeholders integrate values of equity and inclusion into their work.
We also work directly with Latinxs and other underserved communities to ensure that they are able to take full advantage of the opportunities that technological innovation has to offer—and they are prepared for the risks and challenges that innovation can present. We provide up to date information and analysis to inform members of underserved communities about new policies and developments and how they will impact their daily lives and futures.
We look ahead to anticipate how emerging technological and policy developments will impact underserved communities, and we proactively engage stakeholders and community leaders to find solutions to challenges before they arise.
Fundamentally, we understand that the challenges faced by the Latinx community and other underserved communities are more than just “issues” to be addressed; they are opportunities to build a stronger and healthier country for everyone.
