711 Atlantic Ave
Boston, MA 02111
Lunch & Learn: Innovate Advocacy with FWD.us
By attending this lunch, we will take half an hour to discuss the major issues affecting the tech community and how these feed into broader social justice issues facing our country. Q and A will follow and refreshments will be provided.
FWD.us is an organization started by key leaders in the tech community to promote policies that grow the knowledge economy. This organization was founded on the principle that we are moving from an industrial economy to a knowledge economy and that tech is the catalyst of this transition. In order to be successful in this new economy, we need to understand how up and coming tech companies will fit into this new system and how it can act as a facilitator for innovation and growth.
- How to become involved in FWD.us local chapter efforts
