This Friday, I’ll be one of 70 Bay Area’s top digital leaders who will commemorate the United Nation’s 70th anniversary on Friday in San Francisco. I’m humbled and grateful for the opportunity.

70 years ago, the UN Charter was signed. 
“WE THE PEOPLES OF THE UNITED NATIONS DETERMINED to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war, which twice in our lifetime has brought untold sorrow to mankind, and to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small…” 

Read the full charter: http://bit.ly/UN70Charter  #UN70 

At +BUILDUP  a U.S. based 501(c)(3) non-profit we are focused on supporting an inclusive ecosystem of entrepreneurs focused on building new technologies to solve the world’s most critical challenges. 

I’m also the advisor for several diversity and inclusion impact organizations such as Women Who Code, Engine.is, ODALC,Qeyno, and STEMBoard.

As the co-organizer of the Tech Inclusion Conference we’re exploring innovative solutions to tech diversity and inclusion.

I’m looking forward to connecting with world leaders who are passionate about about all people of all races and genders who understand it’s our human right to live and live in a fair and just world.
