CodeOp Fireside Chat: Tech & Activism with Erin McElroy

November 25, 2020 @ 19:00 - 20:30


Conversations from the margins of tech

About this Event 🙌

CodeOp’s SubVersions is a remote, global series of fireside chats highlighting the projects and people on the margins of tech.

Speakers from all over the world, working at the intersection of tech and sex, performance arts, music, wine, society, and innovation, will share their stories and perspectives from their fields. The entire series is free for everyone wanting to watch.

This is something for the technically curious, creatives, entrepreneurs, techies, dreamers, and leaders looking for what’s different out there. These chats won’t cover the same old clickbaity, tech talk topics. It will be a unique opportunity to discover some of the most engaging voices from marginal tech communities and spaces, and engage with a collective of people talking about some quietly game-changing stuff.
