Join Ash Center Technology and Democracy Fellows to develop your digital toolkit. This is a hands-on workshop; participants are expected to arrive ready to learn and practice a new skill.

This workshop will be led by Sofia Gross, an Ash Center Technology and Democracy Fellow who heads up Snapchat’s Political and Non-Profit Partnerships. You'll explore how Snapchat is building products and creative tools to inspire the next generation to engage civically. Participants will learn about Snapchat’s internal product design around civic engagement, get hands-on experience on the ideation and production process, and design their own products like a Snapchat pro. Registration is free, but required for this workshop. Refreshments will be provided. 

The Ash Center's Technology and Democracy Workshop Series are hands-on, co-curricular events designed to help HKS and other students at Harvard develop real-world technology skills. Led by a network of technology practitioners, participants spend time working together and with the workshop leader to learn how to apply technical skills to impact real-word scenarios.
