I’ll be in Nashville June 8 – 10 to attend the 36|86 Conference. 36|86’s mission is to bring southern thinkers, founders and investors together by hosting an annual event in Nashville and inviting a national audience to participate in the experience. This event gathers incredible startup businesses, proven business leaders and strategic investors for a celebration of entrepreneurship and southern culture. Ultimately, this event becomes a platform connecting the “doers,” the “makers,” and the “innovators” in the southeast, around the country, and across the globe.
I’ll be speaking on the Social Justice and Tech Panel, which will address the question: What projects are using data and technology to try to close gaps in various kinds of equality? I’ll be discussing MentorMe and my role as an Advisory Board member with 100 Girls of Code.
Our moderator will be Kate O’Neill, founder & CEO of KO Insights as well as a speaker, writer, startup advisor and consultant. Our other panelists are Bill DiPietro – Digital Reasoning and Jamie Pallot – Emblematic Group. As a social entrepreneur and a data nerd, I’m looking forward to a great conversation.
