The Ford Foundation’s tech fellows work at the intersection of social justice and technology. Each of them is embedded within one of our program areas, lending their expertise on a particular set of issues along with their ability to understand and solve problems through a tech lens. Over the next two weeks, we'll introduce you to our current group of fellows—we’ll hear about their backgrounds and paths to this unique role and about what most excites and concerns them about technology in our world today.
