Equity in Tech Summit coming tomorrow in Milwaukee

Tech Month continues with its featured Equity in Tech Summit event on artificial intelligence to train attendees on how to better leverage the tech in their work.

Equity in Tech Summit, one of the main featured events for Tech Month, will be held in Milwaukee to provide attendees with the necessary information and training to equip workers with how to implement tech in their jobs. The summit will feature two keynote speakers and seven breakout rooms to speak on a variety of different areas in AI.

The two keynote speakers, Lili Gangas from The Kapor Center and Yeshimabeit Milner from Data for Black Lives, will dive deeper into how AI can drive economic inclusion and sustainable solutions to tackle the racial and achievement gaps in Milwaukee.

“AI is not just a hot topic, it’s not just trendy, it’s something that’s going to be here for the long term,” Milky Way Tech Hub and Tech Month founder Nadiyah Johnson said. “Creating strategic programming to ensure that people are aware of what AI is, how to use it and what it looks like to leverage it in business, to build wealth generating companies, I think, is extremely important.”

With this year’s Tech Month centered on AI, Johnson, a Milwaukee native, wants to bring as much attention to how emerging tech can help create a more equitable city and industry.

Tickets are currently on sale for $45. Equity in Tech will be held at Northwestern Mutual, 805 E Mason St., tomorrow in Milwaukee from 12:30-6 p.m.
