TAO Communities

Join other TAO members to build connections, gain practical and technical resources, share expertise and establish a unified voice for our industry.

TAO Communities are professional networks aligned with job functions in the technology industry. They are designed to help our members build connections, share expertise and gain resources as well as practical and technical skills. Becoming part of one of our Communities enables you to network with peers from companies throughout the state and establish a unified voice. 

In 2021 TAO is using a new structure to launch communities and will be relaunching several existing communities, plus a few new ones. Each TAO Community will have two dedicated co-chairs, a charter with a clear aim, and concrete ways to measure success. In addition to staying connected in their own group on Mobilize, a TAO Community will also host quarterly events open to the public. 

Interested in becoming part of one of TAO’s Communities? Connect with Elaine Hsieh.
