Presented by

Jeanne Morain, Founder iSpeak Cloud, Rachel Chalmers (Alchemist), Kim Polese (CrowdSmart), Thiru Thangarathinam (MST )

About this talk

As governments around the world issue orders to shelter in place and we retreat into our homes and go virtual, technology becomes ever-deeply embedded into our daily lives. Video meetings, virtual classrooms and telemedicine are becoming the new norm, and we’re finding creative ways to stay connected to each other in virtual gatherings of all kinds. At the same time, the technology industry is being tested in unexpected ways. As the COVID-19 pandemic rages, technologists are collaborating with healthcare professionals to develop creative, scalable solutions to address critical needs. The crisis also prompts us to be thoughtful about how we can help shape technology in new ways that provide positive, lasting impact long after this crisis has passed. How can the tech industry meet this challenge? And how can we each individually make a difference in a moment that is testing us all? Join technology luminaries Kim Polese (Java/Sun, Marimba, SpikeSource, Crowdsmart), Rachel Chalmers (451 Group, Alchemist), Thiru Thangarathineum (Intel, Apollo, MST Technologies) and Jeanne Morain (iSpeak Cloud) to kick off the #BEtheDifference CoronaCrisisCommunity Challenge.
