Technology Association of Oregon (TAO) is partnering with Multnomah County and other local groups to host a community collaborative problem-solving event and an ongoing, community-based technology incubator called Breaking the Code.
The aim is to break some of the barriers that exist among organizations that specifically serve people of color and the broad, local tech community. Partnering together gives us a platform to bridge the gap between the two and provide opportunities for Community-Based Organizations(CBO’s) to become more efficient and effective in their targeted service delivery.
This event is the first opportunity for CBOs to pitch their challenges to the technology community who will then come together during Digital Inclusion Week from October 4th to October 11th to come up with implementable solutions during a week-long design sprint. Anyone interested in leveraging technology to improve the community: participants, coaches & volunteers are encouraged to attend!
