Diana's Fundraiser for NOLA' 15 Starting Bloc Institute
Organized by: Diana Marquez
EVENT DATE Apr 22, 2015
Hi Friends, I'm so excited to have been selected to the New Orleans Starting Bloc Institute for Social Action!
The tuition for the Institute is $1,250, not including travel and room&board;. I'm hoping the $1,250 to cover tuition before the deadline to accept my invitation to the institute.
Starting Bloc is an institute for entrepreneurs, activists, artists, educators, and innovators around the world that want to unite to ignite social change. For a week, I will join other Fellows to develop and collaborate on our ideas, as well as learn from leaders in the social innovation space.
For those of you who don't know, I recently made a big career change -- I left my job managing project for a political firm to follow my passion of reforming public education through technology. I put myself through an intensive development workshop to learn to code, (because, you know, we need a few more women and Latino's in tech!), and am now ready to dive in head first to create solutions to improve access to education everywhere.
