The Austin Forum on Technology & Society in partnership with Austin Public Library presents Blockchain: Bringing the Transformation Home with Jeremy Drzal, Block512 and Karen Kilroy, Kilroy Blockchain Tuesday, July 10, 2018 Austin Central Library – Event Center 710 W Cesar Chavez St, Austin, TX 787015:45 p.m. – Doors Open6:15 p.m. – Presentation, Q&A7:30 p.m. – Networking What is blockchain? Why has it emerged as a potentially disruptive solution for so many applications? How will it transform business, government, and society? How can/will Austin support, accelerate, and even lead this transformation? Blockchain is a technology that promises utterly secure transactions of all types. It is widely known as the foundation for bitcoin and now for many other digital currencies, or cryptocurrencies, but this is just one important application. Blockchain is a distributed computing technology founded on principles of security, transparency, and permanence, and has potential to increase usability and immutability of all kinds of records and peer-to-peer transactions, from health records to property ownership to distributed IoT applications and prevention/detection of contaminated or counterfeited physical goods—and more. It can accomplish such things while preventing unauthorized usage, corruption of information, and theft of assets. But, what exactly is it, and how does it provide simplicity, enable security, remove ‘middlemen,’ and ultimately promise a more transparent-but-secure, peer-to-peer method of transactions with permanent records? Come hear blockchain experts Tiana Laurence and Karen Kilroy explain all this and more, and learn how Austin can be a leader in the blockchain revolution. We welcome your participation! Please send us your questions, answers and prognostications in advance at info@austinforum.org. Admission to the Austin Forum is always free. The Austin Forum accepts donations of used cell phones and smart phones at all our events. All devices will have a factory reset and be set up as new by the team at Austin Pathways’ nationally-recognized “Unlocking the Connection” initiative, which will connect every public housing resident with a digital device, digital literacy training, and a free or very low-cost internet connection. Your donated phone can change lives and help close Austin's digital divide, thanks to Austin Pathways. Thanks to Austin Public Library for their partnership. And a special thanks to all our sponsors!

SOUTH BAY: Gals Starting Over Fall Career Workshop

SOUTH BAY: Gals Starting Over Fall Career Workshop
Event on 2018-09-22 09:00:00
Gals Starting Over Fall Workshop SOUTH BAY Introduction:  August 28th (Tuesday) at 7PM  Free Career Workshop:   September 8th, 15th & 22nd (9am start time)   “GSO came into my life at the perfect time. The program is clear, precise and motivating. The caliber of coaches is stellar, not to mention the sparks that fly when gals starting over support each other. This organization is relatively new; however, it's scope will definitely impact many women and families in the South Bay in the years to come. This program has breathed life into my fledgling business. I plan on continuing to take the necessary action to bring my special skills to as many as people as possible. Thank you GSO for putting together a template for guaranteed success. God blessGals Starting Over.” –Workshop Participant WHAT IS GSO? Gals Starting Over is a career skills and leadership development program. We are a community of women who will help you rekindle your dreams, repackage your talents and regain your footing in today’s modern workplace. Women from all backgrounds find support in GSO as they build skills and confidence through:• Career workshops and one-on-one coaching to update job search skills• Seasonal information and networking meetings• Additional free career coaching• Skills development in leadership roles and work experience in a GSO group IMPACT  According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (2012) and the Progress of the World’s Women report (2015/16), when women work, economies grow! When you get back on your feet and into a better situation, it benefits you, your family and the community where you live. WHYSometime in our lives, many of us find ourselves starting over. After realizing we’ll be raising a child alone. After facing a difficult divorce or the sudden death of a partner. After recovering from an accident, addiction, or tragedy. Even after returning from war. In each case, we find help with step 1: recovering from the challenging event. But we seldom find help with step 2: finding our way back into the workplace. By reentering the workplace, we can regain our power to earn and rekindle our dreams for the future. OUR STORY  Gals Starting Over was started on the heels of such a story. After 25 years of marriage, our founder Holly Richards failed “to get the memo” that her marriage was done and now she was on her own. Fortunately for Holly, she was able to surround herself with a strong support group who led her through the rough waters of change. But it took a village to get all her skills and abilities back on track. Holly founded Gals Starting Over so that there was a program for other women to get their skills back on track and a place to go to find the helping hands of coaches and experts to navigate the new world we live in when it comes to finding a job or career.  www.GalsStartingOver.org “Seeing any kind of progress motivates me to continue coaching…..I saw one of our participants get a job that allowed her to organize a food distribution to needy families in the area as a function of her new position. A few of us from the program plus our Pastor went to help and were amazed at her ability to supervise the set-up and distribution for so many. We served over 100 families. It was a very successful event. They even had a nutritional portion to help families learn what was best to eat. We had an opportunity to hand out food, give them nutritional information and talk to the families. ” –Workshop Coach For information or to reserve your seat:, Main Number: (424) 225–1272 Info@galsstartingover.org Gals Starting OverCommunity Coordinator:  Ginger Collier (310) 569-8639 GalsStartingOverCC@gmail.com

Seminar on Inclusive Economies for Cities and Regions

Seminar on Inclusive Economies for Cities and Regions
Event on 2018-07-09 12:00:00
Chris Benner, UC Santa Cruz: “Inclusive Economies: Conceptual, Measurement and Process Issues” Incorporating insights from ecological economics, theories of social well-being, and concepts of pro-poor and inclusive growth, this talk will discuss insights from the application of a five-dimensional framework for analyzing and promoting more inclusive economies originally developed by the Rockefeller Foundation. Defining an inclusive economy as one that is equitable, participatory, growing, sustainable and stable, this initiative developed specific indicators that can be used to analyze progress towards more inclusive economies along these five dimensions at national and sub-national levels.  Drawing on efforts to apply this framework at a sub-national scale in Colombia (cities), India (rural states) and South Africa (metropolitan regions), this talk will examine a range of theoretical and practical challenges of developing and applying this integrated framework across a range of contexts.  With a particular focus on analyzing power relations and experiences of historically marginalized populations, this framework can be a useful tool for engaging a wide-range of stakeholders around processes to promote more inclusive economies. Andy Pike, Newcastle University, UK: “Cities and Inclusive Growth” In the wake of the crisis of 2008-09, recession, uneven recovery and the “Great Instability,” social and spatial inequalities have returned to the economic and political agenda internationally. The people and places “left behind” have become central to addressing the conundrum of rising economic nationalism and populism, and the legitimation crises convulsing governments across the world. The search is on for more “inclusive” forms of growth capable of sharing prosperity more widely in social and spatial terms and reducing or ameliorating disparities in economic and social conditions. Touching upon the pathology of contemporary capitalism, the ascendancy and definitions of “inclusive growth” are outlined as well as the relevance of the city/city-region scale and emergent critiques. Inclusive growth in practice is discussed illuminated by recent experiences in Scotland, Greater Manchester and a recent study for Joseph Rowntree Foundation on cities and demand-side policies for inclusive growth. The argument is that “inclusive growth” is an imperfect but workable concept for pragmatic utilization in efforts to bend the economy in more social directions and address social and spatial inequalities. Dr. Chris Benner is the Dorothy E. Everett Chair in Global Information and Social Entrepreneurship, Director of the Everett Program for Technology and Social Change, and a Professor of Environmental Studies and Sociology at the University of California, Santa Cruz.  His research examines the relationships between technological change, regional development, and the structure of economic opportunity, focusing on regional labor markets and the transformation of work and employment.  He has authored or co-authored six books and more that 70 journal articles, chapters and research reports.  His most significant books include: Equity, Growth and Community (2015), which examines diversity and dynamics of regional knowledge communities, and their relationship to social equity and economic growth; Just Growth (2012) which helps uncover the subtle and detailed processes, policies and institutional arrangement that help explain how certain regions around the country have been able to consistently link prosperity and inclusion; This Could Be The Start of Something Big (2009) which examines new regional movements around community development, policy initiatives, and social movement organizing; and Work in the New Economy (2002), an examination of the transformation of work and employment in the information economy.  He received his Ph.D. in City and Regional Planning from the University of California, Berkeley. Andy Pike is Henry Daysh Professor of Regional Development Studies in the Centre for Urban and Regional Development Studies (CURDS), Newcastle University, UK. His research interests are in the geographical political economy of local and regional development. He is widely published in international journals, author of Origination: The Geographies of Brands and Branding (Wiley-Blackwell, 2015), co-author of Local and Regional Development (Routledge, 2006 1st Edition and 2017 2nd edition) (with Andrés Rodríguez-Pose and John Tomaney), editor of Brands and Branding Geographies (Elgar, 2011) and Whither Regional Studies? (Routledge, 2009), and co-editor of Handbook of Local and Regional Development (Routledge, 2011) and Local and Regional Development – Major Works (Routledge, 2015) (with Andrés Rodríguez-Pose and John Tomaney). He has undertaken research projects for the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), United Nations-International Labour Organisation (UN-ILO), European Commission, UK Government and national, regional and local institutions. He is currently working on city economic evolution and adaptation, manufacturing renaissance and the regions, ‘inclusive growth’, and the governance of local and regional economic development. He was Director of CURDS (2012-2017), an editor of Regional Studies (2005-13) and the founding Director of the Postgraduate Local and Regional Development programmes in CURDS (2002-14).
