How Technology Companies & Techies Can Create Even More Social Good!

December 1, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Virtual Virtual Event
Free

We know that technology has greatly enhanced society in almost everything we use, need, and do: from housing and transportation to healthcare and education, in business and in government, and in our personal and professional lives. The tech sector has created wealth and jobs, raised standards of living, and made us more productive, safer, and healthier.

​Certainly, there has been growing ‘techlash’ in the past few years–concerns over fakes news and social media, screen-time addiction, disparities in income and concerns about inclusion, use of personal data and security of private data, and more–the benefits of tech are overwhelming.

We cover the many benefits as well as concerns in our programming, but as we end the year we want shine on light on how many tech companies, orgs and people are directly contributing their expertise and resources to social good!

Join us for this special event as Jessica Sager and guests share examples, suggestions, and even a checklist for how you and your tech company/organization can easily give back for increased social impact in society!
