Jersey Shore Women in Tech: How Emerging Tech Enhances Collaborative Projects & Builds Community

January 21 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm EST

Creative Technology: How Emerging Tech Enhances Collaborative Projects and Builds Community

Description:
Emerging technology often feels overwhelming and out of reach. By imagining the future of tech, with humanity at the center, you are able to participate in and influence it. We live in a world of dynamic and interconnected systems of government, education, business, and communities.

This talk will discuss Amanda’s professional journey in art, design, and education, creating inclusive/collaborative spaces for experimentation, including those that hold space for female and minority founders, and the power of multi-disciplinary collaborative groups.
