The challenges facing our connected world are immense: access to clean water, effective response to crises, and economic empowerment just to name a few. Resolving these issues seems like it would take a superpower.

IT can be that superpower

Join us Wednesday, June 21 at 10:30 am PT for a Twitter chat to discuss real-world instances where technology has been an integral part of accelerating global problem solving, how global problem solvers are using IT and digital skills to do good, and how you can take a bigger role in the world of IT.

Add your voice to the conversation and hear from those who are already at the forefront of solving huge problems through the superpower of IT. Our participants include Zoe Rose, Cyber Security Analyst and former Cisco Networking Academy student, Ron Buell, Chief Technology Officer of Tribal Planet, and Alan Donald, Director of Technology for Development at Mercy Corps.
