Signifier is being supported by British Council’s DICE fund to co-deliver a 14-month (February 2019 – April 2020) programme that is designed to bridge the gap between the mainstream tech sector and marginalised communities (with a focus on women and people of colour). The DICE Fund is part of the wider DICE programme, which was set up to tackle entrenched issues of unemployment and unequal economic growth.

Our programme is a partnership between Signifier and Porto Digital, a tech park based in Recife, Brazil. As one of the most important innovation ecosystems in Brazil, Porto Digital lacks representation of gender, colour and class. As a tech park, the usual participants of entrepreneurship programmes and employment at Porto Digital are white middle class youngsters. Our collaborative programme aims to redress this through a series of workshops, support systems, collaboration and business opportunities for both the tech sector and local marginalised communities.
