COVID-19 Response

COVID-19 Update from the Seattle Tech Community

Seattle Updates | Tech Updates | What You Can Do | Stories from Our Readers

We started these updates in early March to help tech workers stay informed about COVID-19 and ensure social distancing strategies didn’t upend community connections. Our goal was to highlight stories about how the innovation economy in our region was leading in uncertain times. As the pandemic and its economic fallout intersect with the renewed momentum of the Black Lives Matter movement, we have hope this is a true turning point in history. To capture a more holistic view of what’s happening in our region, we are broadening the scope of our updates to include meaningful racial equity work both in tech and in the community.
