Smart Chicago Collaborative and Chi Hack Night have teamed up to create a speaking series in celebration of Women’s History Month in an effort to elevate the talented, diverse women in civic-driven technology across Chicago.
On Thursday, March 30th we will convene at the DuSable Museum of African-American History and hear from a panel of amplifiers of community voice. The panel will feature:
• Andrea Hart of City Bureau
• Aviva Rosman of Ballot Ready
• Tiana Epps-Johnson of Center for Tech and Civic Life
Once the panel wraps up, the format of the event switches up a mini-hackathon. People are invited to break off into groups and work on projects, discuss potential ideas, and share their skills.
Members of the Chi Hack Night community will be on site to run several of our popular breakout groups including:
• An introduction to civic tech
• Digital security 101
This event is free. Food will be provided!
