Systemic Racism, Inequity, and the Role of Tech Entrepreneurship

August 26, 2020

As the country continues to experience a mass movement for social justice and equality to end centuries of racism, how can we all contribute to lasting change? Tech, as a sector that shapes so much of our daily lives, has the opportunity to lead in the fight for equality and racial equity.


Organized by Justice Through Code and supported by the Center for Justice at Columbia University and the Tamer Center for Social Enterprise at Columbia Business School, this session will explore how the tech sector can address systemic racism and how entrepreneurs, innovators, companies, and investors are pursuing opportunities to transform our individual and collective understanding, and pursuing high impact ventures and business innovations designed to achieve racial equity outcomes.
