As always, it was a week to remember. Together, we saw some inspirational speakers, from Rev. Jesse Jackson exploring why diversity in tech matters to Alex Blumberg on the return of the podcast, to Beth Comstock on fostering innovation and disruption in organizations.

We’ll have more updates and recaps to share in the days/weeks to come, and of course we’ll be back for our next edition between June 8-12. Until then, here are a just a few highlights from the week that was SMWNYC 2015:
