The White House is hosting its first-ever tech meetup tomorrow.
It’s an exclusive get-together with only 50 Meetup.com groups invited, and Philadelphia will be well-represented: Corinne Warnshuis, executive director of Girl Develop It, and Mike Krupit, cofounder of Philly New Tech Meetup, are attending. (Philly Tech Meetup, R.I.P., didn’t make the cut.) Warnshuis will speak about Girl Develop It.
From the White House’s press release:
We will gather for the White House Tech Meetup with a few goals in mind: to help each other thrive by sharing best practices and scale outreach and inclusion efforts, to find ways to help more of our neighbors join in (especially those who have been less well-represented in tech), and to engage young people. Through this event, we want to “upgrade” the ability to include all of us in technology and innovation.
