Goodie Nation And Tech Equity Collective Announce $1M In Grants For Black Tech Community

Tech platform, Goodie Nation, has announced a partnership with the Tech Equity Collective Impact Fund to donate $1M to improve tech career prospects for Black professionals.

The program, which has opened its application to all Black and allying organizations, will provide members with tech industry resources and access to exclusive opportunities.

Additionally, selected organizations will receive a year of access to Tech Equity Collective programming, tech industry resources, access to a network of Black professionals, and access to opportunities.

The Tech Equity Collective, a Google initiative, is designed to help accelerate Black representation and retain diverse talent in the tech industry.

Goodie Nation, founded by CEO Joey Womack, is an innovative company that works to help organizations already doing good work enhance their services. The company, which started as a Facebook group, has quickly grown to become a safe space for entrepreneurs to cultivate relationships and vent about things other entrepreneurs could understand.

The companies’ recent collaboration aims to create holistic pathways for Black tech innovators.

Applications are open until December 31. If you’re interested, you can find details here.
