Racial Justice x Technology Policy

The RJxTP Team

Our RJxTP team at the Institute for Economic and Racial Equity (IERE) is at the forefront of tech and AI policy research, working towards creating racially and economically just societies. We provide technical assistance with programmatic design, offer guidance to faculty and research teams, and contribute to knowledge production through curricular development and educational offerings. Our expertise in technology and AI policy, combined with our understanding of ethical dilemmas and commitment to advancing racial justice, allows us to shape the next generation of tech policy leaders. Join us at the Racial Justice x Tech Policy and be a part of our mission to drive positive change at the intersection of racial justice and tech policy.
