Description

Challenges and questions about technology’s impact on our communities are everywhere. What you choose to do with your career in tech has the potential to shape our society for decades to come.

LA Tech4Good, the Innovation for All Podcast and Repurpose Your Purpose are teaming up to talk about careers at the intersection of technology and society. General Assembly Santa Monica is our host venue – RSVP on their site at http://bit.ly/GA-TTM

Can we build technology that values data privacy? How do we build AI that fosters inclusion and diversity, instead of scaling biases? What does it mean to build inclusivity in your product from the get go?

Come for a deep dive beyond tech skills and job titles and meet folks who have found a way to have fulfilling technology careers while tackling some of the most complex issues facing the industry. Then stay for a chance to connect and interact with fellow attendees, and leave feeling inspired and empowered to make a difference.

Why It Matters: This panel will think critically about the important effects of technology on our communities and the topics we often avoid exploring when talking about careers in tech.

Through technology you can choose to have a positive influence: What will you create?

Our panelists are:
– Amanda McGlothlin, Co-Founder and Chief Design Officer at HQ Network
– Juan Sebastian Vasquez, Data Programs Manager, Office of Finance, City of Los Angeles
- Michael Martin, Co-Founder and Director of Public Policy, Free Machine, and Head of Communities at SignalFire
- Terence Honles, Principal Software Engineer at Nexleaf Analytics
