The Public Interest Technology University Network (PIT-UN) reimagines its annual convening and launches, PIT-UN Summit 2024, the marquee event for public interest technologists from across academia, government, civil society, and industry.
What to Expect in 2024
Transformation: Leveraging Technology for Workforce Development and Social and Community Impact
The 2024 PIT-UN Summit will be hosted in thought partnership with Network member San José State University (SJSU), Silicon Valley’s only public university, on Nov. 7-8 in San José, California. PIT-UN Summit leadership will develop programming based on the theme Transformation: Leveraging Technology for Workforce Development and Social Impact.
The 2024 PIT Summit will engage leaders from across Silicon Valley and beyond, including representatives from the corporate, government and non-profit sectors. In addition, student-facing activities such as the Spartan PITathon (WT), will provide students with opportunities to collaborate across disciplines to tackle real-world problems with an eye towards putting people at the center. Students will learn new skills as they network with peers and mentors as well as showcase their projects to future employers.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
We will invite a broad spectrum of participants including Network Challenge grantees, PIT-UN institutional leaders and students, local, national, and international artists, scholars, and technologists, as well as local and national activists, activist groups, and community organizations.
