May 18th - 19th, 2021 With Events Going All Year Virtual Conference with In-Person Elements (Hopefully...)
Good Tech Fest Is Going All Year!
We were very happy with how Good Tech Fest 2020 turned out this past May. We were able to engage over 1,500 people from 42 countries around the world and that was just the beginning. This year we are doing 4 deeper dive events on particular topics all culminating in another global conference (hopefully with some in-person elements this year).
Our 5 events this year are:
- Race, Data, and Justice on August 24 from 11-12:30 CST.
- Data Governance on September 15th from 10-2 CST.
- Data Science on November 18 from 10-2 CST.
- Data Collection on February 10 from 10-2 CST.
- Good Tech Fest on May 18 & 19.
Our deep dive events will include keynote sessions as well as smaller workshops. They will be great opportunities to go deeper on particular topics that are relevant to your organization.
Then on May 18 & 19, 2021 we will be hosting our global festival with keynotes and workshops going throughout the day and night. We are hoping to organize several in-person watch parties and events during those 2 days to foster the in-person community so many enjoy about the conference but that is all pending being able to do so safely.
I am so excited about this year's slate of events. Our global community is continuing to grow and deepen. Join us!

Race, Data, and Justice Event Info
We are very excited to hand the microphone over to several well respected and regarded thinkers on the intersection of race, data, and justice. They will be exploring the intersection of these topics, how technologists can respond to injustice, and the role that technology might even play in addressing inequality. It's going to be a really fascinating conversation to kick-off the 2021 Good Tech Fest season. Get registered for free for this one day event today.
