    An interesting follow up to Tech: A tale of two "Meet Our Team" pages

    Techies is a portrait project focused on sharing stories of tech employees in Silicon Valley.

    We cover subjects who tend to be underrepresented in the greater tech narrative. This includes (but is not limited to) women, people of color, folks over 50, LGBT, working parents, disabled, etc.

    The project has two main goals: to show the outside world a more comprehensive picture of people who work in tech, and to bring a bit of attention to folks in the industry whose stories have never been heard, considered or celebrated. We believe storytelling is a powerful tool for social impact and positive change.

    Read the original post on Medium.

    Techies was conceived in January 2016 by San Francisco-based photographer Helena Price.

    It was brought to life over the course of three months with the help of designer Alonzo Felix and developer Martha Schumann.

    Special thanks to Brian Lam, Michelle Morrison, Bianca L. St.Louis, Stewart Scott Curran, Liz Gershman, Anne Barrington, Kate Stern, Laura Brunow Miner, Maggie Bignell, Matt Buchanan, Sylvia Killingsworth, Josh Puckett, and Fiona Tang, and thank you to all of our contributors for being so generous with their stories and time over the course of the project.

    Costs of this project were partially covered by sponsorships from Ueno, Medium and Facebook. We're thrilled to see companies in Silicon Valley who are willing to support the arts and stand behind work with a pro-diversity narrative.

    Thanks to TranscribeMe! for covering part of transcription costs for the first 100 interviews.

    Questions, press inquiries or just want to say hi?
