The SSRC is an independent, international, nonprofit organization. It fosters innovative research, nurtures new generations of social scientists, deepens how inquiry is practiced within and across disciplines, and mobilizes necessary knowledge on important public issues.
“Understanding technology and its implications is essential to creating a more just and equitable future. How do we ensure the public is better served by the design and implementation of policies and services which anticipate the implications of technology? How can we include the next generation of computer scientists, information architects, engineers, data scientists, and designers in policymaking and public service?
The Public Interest Technology University Network, a partnership that unites 21 colleges and universities, is working to address these very issues by building the nascent field of public interest technology and growing a new generation of civic-minded technologists.
Join us for the first annual convening of the Public Interest Tech University Network to find out more on how the network of partners from higher education, philanthropy, and public policy is building the public interest technology sector; hear from leaders and cultural luminaries on addressing the systemic inequality; and discover how you can use a career as a technologist for good.”
