Founder & CEO

Mercedes Robinson

Mercedes Robinson, the initial visionary behind TEquity in Action, witnessed firsthand the sharp disparities in access to technology and educational resources as an educator in New York City public schools during the pandemic. "I saw clearly who was considered and who was left behind. This sparked a mission within meto normalize tech education for every child, addressing the inequities that the pandemic sharply highlighted." With her extensive background in DEI work and her time teaching, she was driven to bridge the tech industry's divide for students of color.
