Join us here on Thursday, December 3 at 2pm ET for the White House LGBTQ Tech & Innovation Summit Demo. In August of this year, the White House hosted the second annual LGBTQ Tech & Innovation Summit, which brought together over 170 LGBTQ-identified coders, designers, and tech community organizers from across the country to address some of the nation’s toughest challenges using technology solutions. Since the Summit, teams have been working on issues around criminal justice reform, transgender inclusivity, climate, and employment diversity, and on Thursday will present what innovative solutions they’ve created.
The live discussion will be moderated by Megan Smith, the U.S. Chief Technology Officer. Special guests will include:
Courtney Wilburn, Developer, O3world
Cynthia Yeung, Director of Product Partnerships and Operations, CheckMate
Angelica Ross , CEO, TransTech Social Enterprises
Nikki Murray, Software Engineer, Social Driver
Kendra Clarke, Director of Data Science and Analytics, iCrossing
