Kapor Center’s Gift of Gab: See Where We’re Speaking this Spring!

The Kapor Center team has been out and about highlighting the various initiatives and projects we’re involved with. Recently, our Chief Tech Community Officer, Lili Gangas, spoke at a Facebook Diversity event on the ways diverse communities can have enormous impact on everyday products. Our Community Engagement Manager, Tiffany Price, spoke with the co-planners of the Tech Intersections conference in an Systers tech talk about how the conference went from idea to implementation in just a few short months. Check out that conversation HERE. Our Oakland Startup Network Program Manager, Chris McLemore, and our Latinx Tech Program Manager, Josh Torres, spoke at Black and Brown Founders’ Hustle House at SXSW on how to measure success, as men of color. Our amazing researchers, Dr. Allison Scott and Frieda McAlear spoke at the FWD Collective Summit about our new Leaky Tech Pipeline report and interactive website.
