  • Work with Ecoligi to offset carbon emissions

  • Partnering with the East London Business Alliance to provide volunteering opportunities in our local communities
  • Working with local charities to give opportunities within WeShape to underrepresented local talent
  • Establishing the WeShape Tech Academy - partnering with coding bootcamp Le Wagon to provide a comprehensive training and careers package for this from disadvantaged background.
  • Working with our partner events platform London Tech Leaders to provide an annual 'Tech for Good' event, focused on encouraging discussion around new and innovative ways that technology can be used to positively impact the community
