Event description

Innovation isn’t just for the Silicon Valley tech set. Innovation surrounds us in our local design community. Our panel includes Emily Pilloton, a TED stage presenter and the the groundbreaking founder of Project H and Girls Garage, a Berkeley-based design-build program for girls, ages 9-17, whose motto is “Fear Less, Build More”. We’ll also hear from Amy Chu and Meghan Faulkner, co-founders of Local Language Art, an Oakland-based art, design and high tech fabrication and maker studio. Their monthly Artist-in-Residence program allows artists to experiment with emerging technologies. And you’ll meet Sarah O’Rourke King, Autodesk’s Brand Strategy Lead for Autodesk’s Education efforts. Sarah will inspire us as she shares how Autodesk is bringing 3d printing, coding and design to teachers and the next generation of creative makers.

Our all-female panel will be hosted at “Sphere”, a brand new, women-focused, co-working and wellness oasis in downtown Oakland, designed by Innovation isn’t just for the Silicon Valley tech set.
