How Black Women Are Using Tech To Drive Social Change


We’re living in the brighter future we envisioned. A future where technology is being used to disrupt systemic inequalities, but the change is being driven by the people. By the innovators who’ve built platforms that use tech as a tool for change, and by the communities who are using these platforms and thereby actualizing them as tools for true impact. This panel will delve into the real-world experiences of Black women who are leveraging tech for social impact, offering transparency into their challenges, successes and their motivation for using technology as a tool to drive social change.
