Tracy Chow’s resume is impressive. She interned at RocketFuel, Google and Facebook before becoming a software engineer at Quora and Pinterest. He is also a prominent advocate for diversity within the tech industry, launching Project Include in 2016.
Now, he is the founder and CEO of Block Party, which aims to make people feel safe on social media platforms.
Obviously, we are absolutely thrilled to announce that we will be sitting with Chow in a ClearTips session: Justice in early March.
The block party was specifically born out of the experience of Chora working in places like Quora – the creation of a block button was one of the first things built after being harassed on the platform. As an advocate for diversity, and a big name in the tech sector in general, Chow has had her fair share of experience with online harassment.
Chow joined us as part of our founders in the focus series, talking about the process of starting and launching a block party, as well as his strategies for growing the business. We will also explain how Chow makes product decisions for a platform like Block Party, which deals with sensitive issues of safety and welfare.
Chow joins an outstanding cast of speakers at TC sessions: Justice consisting of the likes of Arlan Hamilton, Brian Brackin, and a panel featuring the likes of Netflix’s Wade Davis and Uber’s Bo Young Lee.
The event ends on March 3, and will explore diversity, equity and inclusion in a series of interviews with key figures in tech, gig worker experiences, the justice system, and the technology community.
