Event Description:
In 2015, Accelerate Madison brought filmmaker Robin Hauser to Madison for an exclusive sold-out Wisconsin screening and discussion of her new documentary, CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap. The acclaimed film explores the dearth of American women and people of color in the field of software engineering and the reasons for this gender gap and digital divide.
 
On June 5, Hauser returns for an exclusive Madison screening at the Orpheum Theater of her new film, bias, which highlights the nature of implicit bias, the grip it holds on our social and professional lives and what it will take to induce change. In addition to the screening, this event will feature a networking reception with drinks and appetizers and an illuminating conversation with the director.

4:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.     Director’s networking reception
