Trish and her nonprofit organization, Technology Access Foundation (TAF), are in the news once again being recognized for their outstanding work. This time, the co-founder and executive director of TAF – which is better known around SCG as our key not-for-profit partner, has been selected as one of the 5 local winners of The Jefferson Award. This prestigious recognition began in 1972 as a way to distinguish outstanding citizens who put the needs of others before their own.
Trish Millines Dziko left a successful career at Microsoft to pursue her goal of closing the technology gap and enriching young minds. TAF was founded in 1996 with the mission of giving “children of color the tools to be inventors and creators of technology.” TAF exists side by side with educational resources that are already in place, and works to connect technological resources and education to those that need it most.
