Our movements must be led by the people affected by the issues we fight for, and these leaders need the tools, resources and support to win. ProgTech Network Members prioritise supporting staff/volunteers who identify as and organisations led by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, people of colour, people with disabilities, women, and trans people.
The people we fight for and with, and the people who fund us will not thank us for being competitive, and passing up on the chances to help each other win and create a better world. Together we are movement generous - which means wherever possible, we trust each other and share our tools, work, insight, and experience - especially with network members that don’t have the same access to resources.
The change we need doesn’t come from tinkering around the edges of the social and economic systems we have. We’re fighting for the deep shifts we need to secure social, economic and environmental justice. Network Members fight for a better world through many different pathways - but we’re united in pursuing deep, transformative change to help create a society that works for the many, not the few.
ProgTech acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the stolen lands on which we work. We pay respect to First Nations elders past, present and emerging - sovereignty has never been ceded, and the process of colonisation continues today. We are committed to supporting the leadership of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in the progressive space.
