Women Transform Tech- An Event For Child Safety

Woman Transform TechnologyLooking for an event where women focus on both Technology and Child Safety? Come join us at City National Bank on December the 6th to participate in our Women Transform Tech event. We will have speakers who focus on both technology and the ways we can use it for social good. ABI Los Angeles, NASW-CA Tech Council, and a host of others will bring together child advocate subject/matter experts with technology experts to bridge the digital divide. Transformation leaders will share their experience and give feedback on our solutions. Come listen and learn from the following speakers:

Dr. Diane Adams is the Mid-Eastern Representative to the United Nations Council, United States of America (UNC-USA).

Dr. Michael Durfee MD Chief Consultant. Los Angeles County Interagency Council on Child Abuse and Neglect, ICAN

Telle Whitney  a computer scientist by training, she cofounded the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing with Anita Borg in 1994.

We will also have a fun activity where you get to participate in shaping projects that some of these leaders are currently working on. You will be able to conceive of technical solutions that would tackle problems around information sharing across government agencies, and help find ways to bring this critical information together from the different organizational groups that report it – in real-time. Your participation will help projects with ideas around getting time-sensitive, life or death information accessed and leveraged to help people. This activity will bridge child safety efforts with technology.
