Accelerate Good Global is Back to Inspire in 2020

Mark your calendars…Accelerate Good Global is back for a fourth year of tech for good conversation, inspiration, and community-building!

On March 17, Fast Forward’s Accelerate Good Global summit will take over The Midway in San Francisco, featuring a morning of fireside chats with social impact tech luminaries and an afternoon of interactive breakout sessions. On this day dedicated to impact, the tech nonprofit ecosystem will convene to explore how tech can fuel a next generation social sector.

Accelerate Good Global, Fast Forward's

This year’s keynote speakers have brought the open internet to consumers, helped millions of students across the world access free online learning tools, and saved lives by leveraging tech to help people in crisis. We are thrilled that Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Charles Duhigg will join us to host conversations with Mitchell Baker, Chairwoman of Mozilla, Sal Khan, Founder of Khan Academy, Nancy Lublin, Founder and CEO of Crisis Text Line, and Anne Marie Burgoyne, Managing Director of Social Innovation at Emerson Collective.

Plus, Brigitte Hoyer Gosselink, Principal at Google.org, will join AI leaders (and Fast Forward alums!) Gavin McCormick of WattTime and Nithya Ramanathan of Nexleaf for a panel discussing AI’s role and responsibility in social impact.

Ever a crowd favorite, we have an exciting lineup of Tech for Good Talks–five minute presentations by up-and-coming tech nonprofit leaders on their tech-driven solutions to issues ranging from wasted medicine to inequitable test prep. At AGG 2020, you’ll hear from Palak Shah, Founding Director of NDWA Labs, as well as Fast Forward alums Michelle Brown, founder and CEO of CommonLit; Kiah Williams, Co-Founder and Director of Sirum; Demar Pitman, Founder of Discriminology; Jelani Anglin, Co-Founder and Co-Executive Director of Good Call NYC; and Lisa Wang, Founder and CEO of Almost Fun.

The afternoon of AGG will feature interactive breakouts, with sessions for both tech nonprofit and corporate social impact audiences. Tech nonprofits will also have the unique opportunity to receive one-on-one mentorship from experts at companies including AWS, Google.org, Bloomberg, BlackRock, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Workday, Okta, PagerDuty, Twilio, and Adobe.
