tech at work

December 14 — 2018 In Review

When disaster struck this year, tech stepped up to help rebuild and help displaced residents.

Tech was also at work helping our nation's military veterans transition back to civilian life and secure new career opportunities in the innovation economy,  fighting human trafficking, alleviating hunger, helping families break the grip of poverty, and creating new tools to make work and daily life more accessible for everyone.

As we approach the end of 2018, we reflect below on some of the many ways tech was at work this year in our communities making our lives better.
