Techies is a portrait project focused on sharing stories of tech employees in Silicon Valley. The projects covers 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. Helena Price believes storytelling is a powerful tool for social impact and positive change.
Totally impressed. And, I wish it will grow beyond Silicon Valley. Read the original post introducing the project over on Medium.
