PKG Community Conversations: Tech for Social Good

PKG Community Conversations: Tech for Social Good

Tech for social good graphic

Tuesday, September 24,  6 – 8pm

4th floor R&D Commons, Stata Center

Join the conversation! Meet local organizations exploring ways that computational tech (AI, machine learning, data science, etc) can be used for the social good and restricting tech’s potential for contributing to inequality and injustice.

Community-focused organizations can sign-up for 90-second "pitches" to share their goals and opportunities. Pitching is optional but is a great way to quickly share your message or needs with everyone in the room. Presenters may send one slide in advance to serve as a visual aid.

Participants can take part in a table discussion about transparency and accountability at MIT with the Movement for Anti-Oppressive Computing Practices.

Join us for good food and good conversations!


6:00 pm: Mingle with other tech and community advocates
6:45 pm: Community tech organizations and social ventures share 90-second overviews of their work and needs
End-of-pitches to 8:00pm: Additional time to network

Generously sponsored by Arrow and presented by the MIT PKG Center and MIT Radius..
