On February 11th, 2015 intellADAPT’s founder, Dr. Nish Sonwalkar, spoke at ThinkFWD’s quarterly speaker series. Dr. Nish joined Lani Guinier, Dr. Nancy Hoffman and Dr. Vijay Kumar, in discussing higher education through the lenses of technology and politics.
“Institutions of higher education have been described as “great equalizers,” giving Americans from all backgrounds a chance at social and economic mobility. But today, many argue that colleges are sharpening class divides rather than blurring them. How can we ensure that higher ed is a springboard for opportunity? And how can we create career pathways so students from diverse backgrounds can break into high growth industries like the technology sector?”
“Last Friday afternoon the MITEF Cambridge hosted a discussion between MIT Institute Professor Dr. Mildred Dresselhaus and Assistant Secretary of Education, Dr. Johan E. Uvin, that was moderated by Dr. Nish Sonwalkar, Founder and CEO of intellADAPT and formerly the Director of the Hypermedia Teaching Facility and Principal Educational Architect at MIT. The subject? The status of women in science and engineering and what can be done to encourage more girls and young women to go into these careers.”
