Founded in 2014, WashingTECH is a nonpartisan, nonprofit corporation focused on fostering a diverse and inclusive tech, media and telecommunications public policy dialogue. Through panel discussions, networking events, and our flagship podcast, we educate and convene stakeholders in the tech policy space to crowdsource innovative public policy solutions where they intersect with equity and social justice. While WashingTECH's work is global in scope, we work specifically to increase the participation of stakeholders who are local to the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.
