As founder and president of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, civic rights leader Reverend Jesse Jackson has taken tech companies to task in recent months, pressuring tech giants such as Google, Facebook, Twitter and eBay to publish reports detailing their employee demographics.
Now, the former presidential candidate is bringing his message to Social Media Week New York on Wednesday February 25, to explore why diversity in tech matters.
Reverend Jackson joins an amazing lineup of speakers during Social Media Week New York, including:
- Shiza Shahid, Co-Founder of the Malala Fund, on Reigniting Human Connectivity Through Social Movements
- Jon Oringer, Founder and CEO of Shutterstock, on The Myth Of Venture Capital
- Julie Hansen, President and COO of Business Insider, on The Future of Journalism
