Out in Tech Boston | School’s Out: EdTech & Marginalized Communities

November 15, 2018 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

How can EdTech help LGBTQ+ talent level up? 


With student debt soaring and the cost of education rising, coding bootcamps and online academies are more popular than ever. In fact, major companies including Apple and IBM don’t even require college degrees any longer. 

How are new technologies being leveraged in the field, such as AI/VR? What impact does EdTech have on LGBTQ+ people, and will this play a role in diversifying the tech industry?

Join Out in Tech Boston for an all-star panel of LGBTQ+ leaders and allies in conversation about how EdTech has the potential to impact marginalized communities. 


Panelists

Benjamin Bungert, Director of Operations, LearnLaunch Accelerator
Champika Fernando, Director of Outreach, Scratch, MIT Media Lab
Dalia Sawaya, Technical Coach, Flatiron School
Ryan Werb, Success Partner, Panorama Education


Moderated by: Matthew MinorDirector, International Programs, Solve at MIT


Refreshments provided. 21+ to attend.
