Technology & Racial Equity Practioner Fellowship

In partnership with the Stanford Digital Civil Society Lab (DCSL), the Tech & Racial Equity Practitioner Fellowship supports social sector leaders to dedicate some of their time working on ideas that advance justice at the intersections of race and technology. It allows working people to dedicate a portion of their time to advancing an idea or project that doesn’t quite fit into their “day job.” The goal is to provide time, space, expertise, financial support, and other resources to help transform ideas into prototypes or action, and to build a cohort of fellows to support ongoing learning, community and coalition building.

Applications for the 2025 cohort should be submitted through the Digital Civil Society Lab. Click here for more information.

Current Fellows

CCSRE is pleased to announce our 2024 cohort of Tech & Race Practitioner Fellows. Bringing a wealth of knowledge and hands on expertise to their fellowship projects, our new and highly accomplished cohort will bring awareness, understanding, and a set of practical tools to such critical and wide-ranging topics as indigenous data governance and "Indigital" rights, the use of feminist geospatial data, communities of care, Africa digital art, and sustainable agricultural practices.
