MVMT50 is a coalition of Black thought leaders committed to sustained and systematic improvement in employment diversity, cultural representation and leadership development in the innovation, technology and digital sectors. MVMT50 represents a dimension of the 21st Century’s civil rights movement, with intent to expand opportunity, elevate the value of diversity and disrupt the traditional culture and practices associated with the innovation sector. Our partners and participants gather annually during South By Southwest (SXSW) Interactive to connect, collaborate and build consensus around disruptive and innovative solutions to empower and elevate Black thought leadership.
