IT for Change is a not-for-profit organisation based in Bengaluru, India. IT for Change aims for a society in which digital technologies contribute to human rights, social justice and equity.
Progressive actors from all sectors, we believe, must come together to influence the techno-social changes that are redefining our societies in all areas. They need to begin with framing the discourse, and then advocate for appropriate policies and demonstrate working models on the ground. Therefore, even as our own strategies span all these three areas through research, policy engagement and institutional capacity-building, we also seek to build bridges across different sectors, in the global struggle towards an equitable digital society.Our work in the areas of feminist digital justice, development in the digital economy and platform, data and AI governance that is pro-South, push the boundaries of existing vocabulary and practice, exploring new development and social change frameworks. Network building is key to our work.IT for Change is in Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations.
