Community Conversations: Tech for Social Good
Tuesday, September 24, 2019

Time: 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Location: MIT Stata Center, 32 Vassar Street, R&D Commons (4th Floor)

Sponsored by the MIT PKG Center and MIT Radius

Abstract

Join the conversation! Meet local organizations exploring ways that computational tech (AI, machine learning, data science, etc) can be used for the social good and restricting tech’s potential for contributing to inequality and injustice.

Community-focused organizations can sign-up for 90-second "pitches" to share their goals and opportunities. Pitching is optional but is a great way to quickly share your message or needs with everyone in the room. Presenters may send one slide in advance to serve as a visual aid.

Join us and enjoy good food in good company!

Agenda:

6:00 pm Mingle with other tech and community advocates
6:45 pm Community tech organizations and social ventures share 90-second overviews of their foci and needs
End-of-pitches to 8:00pm Additional time to network

Generously sponsored by Arrow and presented by the MIT PKG Center and MIT Radius.
