Technology has emerged as a powerful tool in advancing DEI efforts across various domains. It provides opportunities to break down traditional barriers, bridge gaps, and amplify marginalised voices. Tech-driven platforms and applications enable widespread access to information, education, and resources, levelling the playing field for underrepresented groups. The power of technology in DEI is contingent upon intentional design, ethical considerations, and continuous monitoring to ensure equitable outcomes. When leveraged effectively, technology has the capacity to accelerate progress, and create a more inclusive and equitable future.
