Who We Are
We Are Pivot.
We know what we want: professionalization. We aim to make social technology a moral profession and upgrade silicon valley from the inside out, equipping it to meet the righteous demands being made by consumers, activists, and civil society.
We host focused campaigns that challenge the prevailing conversations around tech, and amplify voices calling for actionable reform.
It's happened before, in fields like medicine, engineering, law — once unruly trades that over the last few centuries became slowly, painstakingly professionalized. And now it's tech's turn.
We know it's possible, but not without you.
