Who Can Volunteer?

  • Volunteers should have applied design, media, or technology-related experience.
  • Volunteers can be emerging, mid-career, or late-career professionals.
  • Volunteers can participate virtually from anywhere.
  • Representation matters: Research shows, “if one can see it, then they believe they can be it.” We'd love to have a diverse representation of identities (race, gender, gender expression, abilities, age, and more) reflected in our volunteers.
