BIPOC communities continue to face significant disparities in areas such as education, employment, and healthcare, which are compounded by the pervasive impact of structural racism. In the realm of technology, these disparities are even more acute, with BIPOC individuals underrepresented in tech fields and lacking access to the resources and education needed to participate fully in the digital economy.
Bipocity Foundation was founded in response to these challenges, with the aim of leveraging emerging technologies to promote BIPOC equity and equality. Our approach is centered on two main areas of focus: 1) "Emerging Technologies for BIPOC Equity and Equality: Reparations Through Tech Education and Representation," which explores how providing BIPOC individuals with access to tech education and resources can empower communities to take an active role in the development of emerging technologies; and 2) "Blockchain, Agtech, and Urban Agriculture: A New Paradigm for Empowering BIPOC Communities," which investigates the potential of blockchain and other emerging technologies to address food insecurity and promote economic development in urban areas.
Through these efforts and others, we seek to create a more equitable and just society, where the benefits of emerging technologies are shared by all. We invite you to join us in this important work, through participation, partnership, and support. Together, we can build a brighter future for BIPOC communities and beyond.
