First and foremost, GET Cities focuses on being the connector in the ecosystem. We align organizations around shared insights, goals and accountability to accelerate intersectionality and equity in the tech industry and across the economy more broadly. Many of our interventions are the groups we bring together and the facilitation of the shared pilots and learnings that come out of our collaborations.
