We’re excited to announce that Kapor Center for Social Impact will be sponsors the upcoming “Creating an Inclusive Technology Ecosystem Panel” on June 24th at Impact Hub Oakland. At BUILDUP we strongly believe in and support the mission of the Kapor Center for Social Impact and excited to have them as a partner for the upcoming event.
The Kapor Center for Social Impact relentlessly pursues creative strategies that will leverage information technology for positive social impact. We primarily work with underrepresented communities, focusing on gap-closing endeavors.
We believe that the community of tech leaders must reflect the diversity of the United States.
We are particularly interested in social impact for communities that have historically been on the periphery of access to opportunity, participation and influence in the United States.
We believe that when the community of tech leaders reflects the diversity of the United States, tech will play an integral role in closing gaps and disparities that exist in this country.
Via proven methods from the for-profit and non-profit fields, we work in partnership with a diverse set of stakeholders to maximize social impact.
We’re pleased to add Cedric Brown, Managing Partner at Kapor Center for Social Impact to our inclusive panel on June 24th, Building Innovation: Creating an Inclusive Technology Ecosystem. Other panelist include:
Barbara Williams, Director, Diversity and Inclusion at Oracle Corporation
Leah McGowen-Hare, Master Technical Instructor at Salesforce.com
Kiva Wilson, Diversity program manager at Facebook
Amy Schapiro, Director, Fellows Program at CODE2040
Samantha O’Keefe, Battlefield Editor at TechCrunch
