Deadline: 1st March, 2021
Applications are now open for collective action in tech fellowship 2021. The fellowship is open to all tech workers, researchers, content creators and journalists.
Fellows will receive $500-1000 to share a story of collective action in the tech industry, past or present. This can be a protest, strike, display of solidarity, community-building effort or any other kind of collective project that empowers tech workers speaking out on workplace or broader social issues. For this fellowship, the “tech worker” has an expansive definition.
We’re interested in stories not just of software engineers and data scientists, but of all workers in the tech sector including content moderators, warehouse workers, gig workers, and contractors. Content will be published on our website and through one of our media partners.
This year’s theme will focus on collective actions in the Global South (South and Central America, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia). The technology industry is a global one, but labor actions in the U.S. and Europe receive disproportionately more media attention than those in the Global South. We seek to address this inequality by giving talented content creators the resources and channels to tell their stories.
In creating this fellowship, we hope that fellows will learn about the similarities and differences of tech worker struggle in various geographies of the Global South and North and bring these learnings to their own site of struggle.
For every fellow accepted into the program, we can offer:
- $500-1000 per project based on team size and resources needed for the project
- Publication on our website AND with one of our media partners
- Membership in a community of fellows and CAiT members and contributors; optional virtual workshops for providing feedback and reviewing pieces
