Event Details

How Has Technology Changed Our Perceptions of Gender?

Program Information

Our social and legal perspectives about gender have changed a lot in the last 50 years.

  • Does Gender still matter?
  • Can we achieve Diversity without Discrimination?
  • Is this a zero sum game, or does eliminating gender bias help everyone?
  • Is Gender Bias inherent, or is it simply institutional, and we just need to work harder at it?
  • Who decides someone’s gender, and what limits are there on a change of gender?

These issues are not merely academic. They are problems and opportunities for businesses, both with respect to their own human resources and also with respect to market opportunities.

What are innovative companies doing about it? Are there business opportunities if gender that is not binary, and not even spectral? Where is the Central Coast in the national debate?

The MIT Enterprise Forum of the Central Coast has assembled a panel of local experts from academia and industry to discuss their perspectives on these important issues.

Join us on Wednesday, November 20 to learn and discuss more.

This program will be moderated by Central Coast MIT Enterprise Forum Vice Chair, Steven Sereboff.

Speakers

  • Mary Kennett, Deckers Brands
  • Tristan Bridges, UCSB
  • Cate Taylor, UCSB
  • Valerie Jackson, Procore Technologies

MIT Enterprise Forum of the Central Coast

The Central Coast MIT Enterprise Forum hosts the region’s top business and technology events. Each month, we bring together veteran business leaders and experts to host events designed to educate, inform and inspire entrepreneurs.

Our Mission
To promote a unique process and atmosphere to develop and strengthen the entrepreneurial community in the Central Coast through interaction with experienced executives who have successfully navigated the challenges of building an organization.

In 1986, the MIT Enterprise Forum of the Central Coast was established to serve the coastal business communities of Los Angeles, Ventura, and Santa Barbara counties. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology Enterprise Forum has 25 chapters worldwide, each offering unique programs and networking opportunities for entrepreneurs.

Presentations
Early stage businesses face many common challenges. In case presentations, the Forum provides local entrepreneurs the opportunity to present their business plans during an open meeting before a panel of specially chosen business experts and an audience of peers and other people interested in business development. This Forum format provides the presenting companies an opportunity to receive feedback and suggestions for their businesses from experienced professionals.

Selected Topics
Special topic presentations address current and specific challenges facing early stage businesses. A special panel of entrepreneurs and industry experts is assembled for an in-depth “round table” discussion of the issue.

 

MIT Enterprise Forum of the Central Coast is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization registered with the state of California, supported by individual and community contributions. Tax ID/EIN# 77-0248019
