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.
 
Now, two years later, we continue the conversation to discuss progress being made in Greater Madison and challenges still to overcome. Joining the conversation from California will be Robin Hauser to share reaction to the film as well as introduce her latest work, Bias.

What Others Have Said

  • Kudos to the Chamber and the Small Business Advisory Council for the creation of the Road Construction Survival Guide. It connects the affected businesses with the city departments and the construction company in charge. The regular meetings and contact with the correct people makes a huge difference in coping.

    Teena Browder, Cork ‘n Bottle
  • My small business has a voice in local politics with the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce, I have a voice here. We’re all business people and we look at the bottom line. The return on investment from my Chamber membership and the advocacy it provides is far above what I get from other organizations.

    Tim Lightner, Owner, Two Men and a Truck
  • The Chamber has worked tirelessly to promote the interests of the local business community, and to create and preserve the conditions that allow businesses to thrive, for the good of the entire community. I can think of no organization that is better equipped to guide us through this time than the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce, and we all owe it our full support, to our mutual benefit.

  • The Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce has been an excellent resource for my small business. The Chamber provides multiple channels for business awareness, networking opportunities and helpful educational programs. Being a member of the Chamber has really made a difference in helping expand my business visibility, growth and development in Dane County.
