Trish Millines Dziko | 2004

Trish Millines Dziko co-founded Technology Access Foundation (TAF) in 1996 after spending 17 years in the tech industry. TAF builds collaborative relationships with public education to create access to transformative systems of learning for students and teachers of color to eliminate race-based disparities in an increasingly diverse society. TAF transitioned from out-of-school programs to become a statewide leader in public education, co-managing public schools, and supporting educators to increase the number and retention of teachers and leaders of color in Washington state.
Located in the Central District, Seattle Girls' School is an independent school for girls and gender nonconforming students in grades 5-8. Our mission is to inspire and develop courageous leaders who think independently, work collaboratively, learn joyfully, and champion change.
