Join us for an evening in conversation with Lisa Conn, co-founder and COO of Gatheround (formerly Icebreaker), an online event platform that builds community and gives people a sense of togetherness. Building community has been a theme throughout her professional life, encompassing leadership roles at Facebook, the MIT Media Lab, FWD.us, and President Obama’s campaign. We’ll explore together themes of:

  • Creating an equitable remote culture 
  • Bringing our values and ethical decision-making into tech decisions as creators and users 
  • Women in Technology 

This event will be held on the Gatheround platform. Please note: due to the particulars of Gatheround, the link is not included in the calendar invite. Detailed instructions for accessing the event will be included in the pre-event emails for all who register.
