Trish Dziko is the co-founder and Executive Director of the Technology Access Foundation (TAF). TAF is a Seattle-based non-profit that is redefining K-12 public education in Washington State for all students and teachers, particularly those who identify as a person of color and are from traditionally underserved communities. TAF partners with public school districts, universities, community, and corporate partners to improve learning opportunities and academic achievement for underrepresented students. They also empower emerging teachers and education leaders of color within public education through professional development and a network of support. Through the lens of equity and by using STEM as a tool for social change, TAF’s approach to public education provides an opportunity to undo systemic oppression and make education a place where everyone wins.
