Next UW CoMotion Innovation Chat Series at end of January

On January 31, CoMotion will host the fifth in our series of CoMotion Innovation Chats where we bring together academia, industry, and community leaders to spur a dialogue on important issues and technology of the day. The recent election was a tangible reminder of the invisible walls separating our communities and the need to build greater communication and understanding.

Be part of the conversation for “Exploring Inclusive Solutions to Disruption.” We will discuss the recent election, the political divide, the stark division between cities, and the rest of the country, as well as the disruption new technologies are creating in our work force at an unprecedented rate. We want to have a conversation about those who are experiencing exclusion and disruption, and discuss inclusive solutions that will address some of these issues.

Special Guests:
Vikram Jandhyala, UW Vice President for Innovation Strategy
Ana Mari Cauce, President of the University of Washington
Ken Denman, CEO of Emotient
Former Senator Jim Hargrove, 24th District – Hoquiam
