Fireside Chat Series


Equitech and Inclusive Innovation: A Fireside Chat Series with NeuroTech Innovation Leaders

NOTE: These sessions have now passed – please watch the recordings available below. 

Equitech is the principle that diversity of teams, leadership, and perspectives is a force multiplier that fuels inclusive technology innovation. A key corollary of this principle is that a more inclusive innovation space is likely to produce solutions that are more equitable and accessible to all communities, especially the underserved.

Co-hosted by CIMIT's CINTA and NeuroTech Harbor, through the NIH's Blueprint MedTech program.
