Growing Hope—and Tech Careers—in the Bronx


It is clear that the careers of tomorrow will be filled by a budding generation of technology entrepreneurs. The challenge: How do we equip youth across America with the tools they need to pursue these careers and become tomorrow’s leaders?

On September 10th, MSNBC and #YesWeCode will host a special broadcast event in the Bronx, focused on growing a new generation of tech leaders. Here, aspiring young people will engage in a dialogue with local community leaders and successful entrepreneurs on how to pave the way towards becoming the new faces of tech. This unique, multigenerational discussion will explore opportunities to develop and scale initiatives to create a more inclusive tech economy, and how technology professionals have the power to drive positive change in local communities across America.

Join MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts and Frances Rivera for live event coverage and inspiring conversation with a diverse set of leaders of today and tomorrow. Don’t miss Growing Hope Live from the Bronx, sponsored by Ford. September 10th at 2pm on MSNBC.
