Diversifying the Digital World

Co-sponsored with the Kairos Fellowship

The digital world, now so fundamental to our lives, has long been a mostly white and male universe. The Kairos Fellowship program is working hard to change that culture by supporting emerging digital leaders of color, providing them with rigorous training, leadership development, mentorship, and on-the-job learning with some of the largest digital campaigning organizations in the country. By bringing more technologists of color into the fray, we can enhance the tools, metrics, and algorithms that shape our digital world to make sure it serves everyone. Hosted by Mariana Ruiz Firmat, Kairos Fellowship Director. With: Kairos Fellows Irna Landrum, Eric Enrique Borja and Mohammad Khan.
