Hacking Discrimitation and Bias

Hacking Discrimitation and Bias

April 28, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - April 29, 2017 @ 6:30 pm

Excitement is continuing to build for HACKING DISCRIMINATION.  This is a great opportunity to roll up your sleeves and make a difference.  This hackathon is intended to provide a mechanism for meaningful dialog, learning, networking and solution development.  Our hope is that prototypes will be developed and commercialized to have far reaching, positive impact.

Don’t miss our Saturday morning keynote, Randal Pinkett, CEO of BCT Partners.  Amazing.  Successful.  Committed to giving back.  Randal received his SM, MBA and PhD (Media Lab) from MIT.  He’s the Founder and CEO of a multimillion dollar business, BCT Partners.  You may want to ask him about his experience of being a winner on The Apprentice!

Students and academics from a dozen schools have registered along with professionals from medical institutions, consultancies, and companies ranging from local startup, Toast, to giants like GM and Google.  When you register, check out the schedule, speakers, team leaders, and mentors as well as the range of really interesting hack topics- everything from immigration to the WIC/Food Stamp program to police stops and more!
