Women in Civic Tech Speaker Series: Creators & Founders

March 29, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

NOTE: RSVPs are closed on this page, but we wanted to share this event with our Connect Chicago Community. Please visit the Eventbrite page to officially RSVP to the event!

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 wednesday, March 29th we will convene at the Homan Square Community Center and hear from panel of civic tech creators and founders to hear about their personal narratives. The panel will feature Allyson Scrutchens of Forward Planning and Dima Elissa of VisMed-3D. 

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 even is free and food will be provided!
