About HTI Labs
Combating Violence Through Data-Driven Research and Technology
As a women-led organization, we recognize the power that comes from bringing together those who understand the problem, create technology to address it, and implement solutions. We leverage this integration to develop solutions empowered by creativity and technology.
What started as an undergraduate research project turned into a multifaceted research and technology initiative driving change throughout the country.

We question the status quo – especially when it comes to our own work.
We follow where the data leads and don’t let our end goals determine our conclusions.
We have big goals – a world with reduced violence and exploitation and empowered victims and survivors. With goals this important, we have to judge ourselves based on outcomes, not throughputs.
We recognize our reputation depends on accuracy. It’s okay to say “I don’t know yet.”
