The Tech That Comes Next: How Changemakers, Philanthropists, and Technologists Can Build an Equitable World

Wed., May 18, 2022 | 2:00pm - 3:15pm

Online

Technology is shaped by many hands along the way: those who are part of technology development process, those who fund projects and companies, and those who decide how to put technology to use; and that technology then shapes a range of outcomes for society. To ensure those outcomes truly benefit the public, we must—all of us—shift our relationship to technology —how we build it, fund it, and use it.

Join the Technology and Public Purpose Project and the Berkman Klein Center as they host Afua Bruce on her latest book release, The Tech That Comes Next.
