Cornell Tech’s Public Interest Tech initiative (PiTech) is pleased to welcome its second cohort of Visiting Practitioners (ViPs). The goal of the program is to foster collaborations with tech leaders from a range of impact-oriented organizations and to engage in conversations around PiTech at Cornell Tech.

ViPs engage with Cornell Tech students and other community members in multiple ways throughout the semester, such as giving talks, offering office hours, providing feedback on product and business ideas, and informing the direction of PiTech at Cornell Tech.

“We’re excited to welcome our next cohort. Through conversations and interactions with these thought leaders, students can learn about how technology can be effectively applied to serve the public interest,” said PiTech Initiative Director, Małgorzata Rejniak.

The second cohort of ViPs for the fall 2022 semester includes: Afua Bruce, Public Interest Technologist and Author, Stephen Nicoleau FullCycle Partner, Jennifer Park, Executive Director of the Opportunity Accelerator at Results for America, and Jorge Fontanez, CEO of B Lab U.S. & Canada.
