The ACT report hopes to be a seminal piece of work—a blueprint for anyone who wants to promote equity in tech.
The Catalyze Tech Working Group spent a year deeply considering what it would take to transform DEI outcomes in tech. The result is The ACT Report: Action to Catalyze Tech, A Paradigm Shift for DEI, which lays out four recommendations and 10 actions that tech companies and leaders can take to truly shift the DEI paradigm. It includes concrete steps companies can take, as well as a variety of resources and Tool Kits that your teams can use to advance your goals. Critically, it takes account of the business realities facing leaders and companies who want to drive change.
