Leveraging Tech for Social Justice: Workforce Edition

April 1, 2020
5:30 – 7pm

Technology has helped society achieve things we never thought possible – cars that are self-driving, money transfers with the tap of a finger, channel flipping with the sound of your voice – and each innovation has proven valuable for many diverse populations across the globe. At the same time, how has technology fallen short or even created harm, especially for some of Chicago’s young people and communities?

Tech on the Block: The Workforce Edition will examine the implications of inequitable access to and usage of workforce technology. Too often, our young people are unable to access work opportunities due to various barriers. How do we ensure that technology is utilized to help our young people find employment opportunities and grow their networks? How do we leverage technology to widen access to workforce initiatives and provide support systems for greater job success?

Hear from entrepreneurs who are challenging the status quo for diverse populations – from creating more workforce access opportunities for Chicago’s youth and communities to helping students with professional readiness through hiring and job success.
