Meet The Founders

“Look, It’s simple, everybody should be able to have a seat at the table.

We are in the fourth industrial revolution with the technology sector leading the way. This opens up opportunities to those who are interested and informed, but this also means, there are people who may be interested but uninformed. Solidarity In Tech is a space to help break down barriers and employ true diversity across the board. Our purpose is to ensure, “no one is left behind”. We aim to engage, raise awareness, and present opportunities in the technology sector to minority groups – ethnic minorities, neurodiversity and gender! Solidarity In Tech’s aspirations is to reach out to socioeconomically deprived communities as well as already existing communities in the city centre and make careers in the Tech sector accessible and obtainable for ALL.” – Jamaal R. A. Brathwaite, Founder, Solidarity In Tech CIC

“We believe that diversity & inclusion in the Tech sector, should be ingrained in every company’s DNA. The McKinsey & Co ‘Delivery Growth Through Diversity’ report shows that, when a company hires diverse talent, their profitability and productivity rises by 40%. The people in these teams have opportunities to grow, develop their talent and obviously be economically empowered. It’s a win-win-win situation!” – Dr. Elsa G. Zekeng, Co-Founder, Solidarity In Tech CIC

Our Mission

The words: Equality, Diversity and Inclusion are rarely strange words to any sector in our society. This is true for the Tech industry which includes the other sectors of Science, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). The STEM sectors are driven by the people in it and therefore should be truly diverse and equal.

Talking about equality and diversity can take many forms. Solidarity In Tech aims to focus on inclusion of ethnic minorities while supporting other minorities such as gender and neurodiversity
