- DATE TIME: Tuesday October 20, 2020, 6:00-8:00 pm.

The last decade has seen the rapid adoption of technology and we see nothing to change that going forward. However, there have been sober second thoughts about technology’s impact on society, particularly for marginalized communities whose voices often go unheard. Equity is the foundation for peace and prosperity in this new age of uncertainty characterizing the ambitions of 21st century organizations and businesses.
The evening will begin with an open conversation with Erica on themes related to inclusion in UX, followed by smaller breakout rooms where guests can meet Erica in-person.
