Inside the Activists Studio Series: Trish Millines Dziko
January 31, 2019 from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm
We’d like to invite you to an incredible night of community conversations at Inside the Activists Studio Series, a quarterly event where we learn from trailblazing activists and build connections with each other.
Rainier Valley Corps (RVC) will be interviewing Trish Millines Dziko, cofounder of Technology Access Foundation (TAF). Trish spent several years as a developer, designer, and manager working at Microsoft during a time when few people of color and women were entering the high tech industry. Through work experience, Trish traced the root of the problem to the lack of access to rigorous, relevant technology training in our public schools, particularly those in traditionally under served communities of color.
From afterschool programming that pairs youth of color with internships at leading high tech companies, to opening and operating an award-winning, nationally recognized public school, to professional development for teachers of color, and transforming Title 1 schools, TAF is now a statewide leader in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education.
How did this happen? What have the last 20+ years looked like for Trish in leading this work? Join us to learn more about her journey, and how STEM education can not just change our students, but our entire communities!
When: Thursday, Jan. 31, 2019
Time: 6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Location: Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute – 104 17th Ave S, Seattle, WA 98144
