Welcome to CrossRoads 2016 – our thought leadership conference that brings together researchers, innovators, practitioners and influencers to explore how to best expand access to high quality education in computer science, coding and Making, with a particular focus on equity and inclusion. This year, CrossRoads will be held at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square, from April 27- 29, 2016.
We all share the same goals – using effective education as a driver for greater diversity, faster economic growth and better preparation for 21st century careers.
Through a combination of engaging keynotes, discussions and peer-learning opportunities, CrossRoads will help you learn more about the diverse initiatives in this area, what is working and what is not. We will deliberate, discuss and debate on how this is currently being done, what remains to be achieved and how to accelerate the pace of change.
Infosys Foundation USA looks forward to welcoming you to San Francisco and CrossRoads 2016.
CrossRoads by Infosys Foundation USA hosts some of the most distinguished visionaries, thought leaders and innovators from the field of computer science and Maker education.
