Would you like to run a civic program on the Tech Month Chicago platform this September?
The Chicago technology community is leading the way in showing the rest of the country how to create a dynamic and inclusive local tech community. There are so many wonderful people out there doing great things to uplift others in Chicagoland. Are you one of those people, or do you know someone who is?
If so, we’d love to hear from you if you have a bit of extra time and would like to have your mission or civic tech or civic outreach program featured on our platform for the month of September during Technology Awareness Month in Chicago. We’ve done things in past years such as promoting tech job training at food pantries, elevating programs for students in STEM, and hosting an awards program.
Tech Month Chicago is in its third year. It is an awareness campaign geared toward the general public in the Chicagoland area to make them aware of local tech events, tech venues and coworking spaces and more. We have a calendar of events that we promote to the general public. If you would like to submit events to our calendar for the month of September, please do so here: http://bit.ly/TMCSubmitEvent
Our hope is to be more than just a calendar and to do that we need to hear from you. What’s your techy niche when it comes to helping to elevate others in Chicagoland? Senior citizens? Bike Riders? Special needs children? Women in Tech? Something else? Let us know by July 31, 2018, and we will meet with you, discuss, and work with you per your project to use our platform to promote what you’re doing to the general public.
Much love and respect,
Melanie Adcock, CEO of Tech Month Chicago firstname.lastname@example.org 312-259-0610 (Open to receiving communications)
