The Civic Tech Institute at Equitech Futures empowers leaders in the social sector - governments, nonprofits, and social enterprises - with the data and technology skills critical to achieving impact at scale.

Our project-based curriculum, anchored in cohort-based learning and led by world-class faculty, provides a practical understanding of applied data science and AI across various domains - from public health and climate change to the nature of networked societies.

The Civic Tech Institute is designed for social impact leaders who might not have a STEM background but want to learn how cutting-edge technology tools can be leveraged for the public good.

The Civic Tech Institute (CTI) is designed to focus on the technological and community-based tools that can be deployed across sectors to address pressing civic challenges. This will be done via hands-on projects and "idea labs" that encourage you to explore topics deeply. You will also cultivate the essential skill of "learning to learn," which will equip you to tackle present and future challenges.
