UCI Applied Innovation Overview

Welcome to the inaugural event of OC Tech for Good, where local nonprofits collaborate with tech talent to affect positive change in Orange County.  Our kick-off event features leaders among OC’s 5,700 nonprofits and 600+ technology organizations.   Panelists will share their insights on driving social impact by engaging our technology workforce in skill-based volunteering.   We’ll share success stories taking place in the OC and organizations you can tap to continue the momentum. 

Break out sessions will follow to get the ideas and Q&A flowing in small group settings.  We look forward to exploring what we can achieve together.
