Push Tech 2020 Summit 2018
in Silicon Valley
Since the passing of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. the world has evolved and progressed yet, much of American society has remained entrenched in the past. The one figure from the group of civil rights activist and fighters who surrounded and were inspired by Dr. King stand above the rest, the Reverend Jesse Jackson. From his historic run for the presidency to his creation of the Rainbow Push organization. He has continually been on the forefront of the struggle for equality, diversity and economic opportunity for all Americans. Yet, again his foray into the new paradigm “the Tech revolution” has been no less impactful. From his addressing the share holders of major technology companies in Silicon Valley to his development of the PUSH TECH 2020 SUMMIT. His legacy as a legendary front-line soldier for the rights of others is cemented in history for future generations to use as a guiding light.
Recently, I had the opportunity to participate in the PUSH TECH 2020 SUMMIT event. I was so very impresses with the organization, the panelist and information shared.
