About Inclusive Tech Policy

Inclusive Tech Policy focuses on advancing inclusivity in global technology policy by lifting underrepresented voices. Technological innovation forms the foundation of modern society. It underpins our collective ability to address global challenges ranging from the environment and health care to human rights and national security. The policies that guide the design, development and use of technology determine, to a large extent, the role that these innovations play in society. As such, technology policies, and the policymakers who shape them, are powerful arbiters of future human welfare.

AU community members influence global technology policy through research, workforce development, policy engagement, and community building activities designed to advance inclusive technology policy, strengthen global leadership, and achieve a more socially equitable technology infrastructure.
