Working Groups – Moving the Initiatives Forward for Greater Good

  • Working Groups are groups of like-minded Advocates who set objectives like education or professional development within a tech vertical.  TBAA Working Groups include verticals such as Blockchain, Women In Tech, WineTech, CannaTech, Creative or geographies like Mexico, Turkey, LatAm.
  • Working Groups have an opportunity to showcase their efforts, build their networks and move forward at TBAA events and through the online platform.

Time Commitment for Advocates

  • There is no time commitment required to being an Advocate; you can participate in and engage with the group as much or as little as you like.
  • The only five asks of each Advocate, irrespective of their level of engagement are:
    • Be in sync with the mission, values and messaging of Global Tech and Tech Bay Area Advocates.
    • When ready, help expand the Tech Bay Area Advocates by introducing 1 to 2 new Advocates annually from the Bay Area, North Bay or around the world.
    • Adopt the ethos of helping one another for the ‘greater good’ as a means of establishing a strong and vibrant technology sector.
    • Maintain the highest level of integrity in dealings with fellow Advocates, the tech community and the overall communities in which we live.  Maintain a positive mindset and have FUN!
    • Support providing a hand up to the growing need of the under served youth in the Bay Area through Tech for Good practices like volunteerism, active engagement, or donations.
