Emerging Technologies and Underserved Communities




Emerging technologies will bring both disruptions and opportunities to many sectors of our economy and society. What issues must we address to ensure that the benefits of these innovations are shared by currently underserved communities? On September 21st, join ALLvanza, the Multicultural Media, Telecom and Internet Council (MMTC), and OCA – Asian Pacific American Advocates for a conversation on these urgent questions:

– What impacts will emerging technologies have on our privacy?
– How can we ensure that companies developing new technologies have diverse decision-makers and workforces so that new innovations do not create or worsen built-in biases?
– What must we, as a society, do to prepare underserved communities to participate fully in this era of innovation as employees, creators and as users of new technologies?

The event is finished.
