SXSW 2019: Priscilla Chan
Too often, the people who understand our most pressing challenges never get to partner with those who may be able to help accelerate change through technology. And vice versa. A former teacher and pediatrician, Priscilla Chan will describe how the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative aims to change that by pairing technologists with people on the frontlines -- like scientists focusing on disease prevention, prosecutors working to make the criminal justice system more fair, and teachers struggling to meet the unique needs of every student. Tech alone can't solve the world's most pressing problems, but people can. We just need to work together.
