The Action to Catalyze Tech (ACT) Report: A Cross-Industry, Multi-Stakeholder Report

Published on 10/27/2021

The ACT Report is a collaboration led by four key partners — Snap Inc., NCWIT, PwC, and the Aspen Institute — as part of an ambitious project to “Catalyze Tech.” The objective of Catalyze Tech is to reimagine tech’s current siloed approach to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) and align the tech industry around collective action underpinned by academic rigor and evidence-based best practice that tackles root problems. The ACT Report draws on the collective expertise of a 28-member Academic and Industry Working Group and provides a rigorous framework of action for tech CEOs. NCWIT social scientists serve on the working group, and NCWIT is the key research partner to the Catalyze Tech initiative. The working group spent a year answering the question, “What will it take to transform DEI outcomes in tech?” The result is four recommendations and 10 actions believed to lead to a paradigm shift in DEI across the tech industry.
