Progressive HackNight at ThoughtWorks
April 23 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Progressive HackNight mobilizes tech workers for good.
At Progressive HackNight, we design, plan, and organize around technology that addresses inequity and promotes a society that works for all. We take a strong stance that technology that breeds injustice and oppression should be dismantled. Our bi-weekly hacknights, open source projects, and issue-based campaigns educate and empower advocates and tech workers to create progressive change.
This event is open to technologists, organizers, data enthusiasts, UX/UI designers, creatives, project managers, product managers, coders, etc… of all backgrounds and experience levels.

The schedule is as follows:

7:10p – 7:30p : Speaker
7:30 – 7:40p : Breakout introduction

At each HackNight, we have two types of breakout groups:
Learning Groups – groups who want to learn new skills, discuss and strategize on issues, or refine their ideas.
Working Groups – teams who provide opportunities for our community to use their skills by actively building technology and tools.
If you have a breakout group idea, start one by creating an issue in our Project Ideas Github repo, and emailing us at email@example.com to let us know if your group will be there! There are two types of breakout groups: discussion groups and working groups.
