About the speaker:
Hilary Braseth is Director of Product for Voatz. In previous lives, she lived and worked in West Africa with the Peace Corps and co-founded Dare to Innovate, a multinational social enterprise that catalyzes youth in the fight against unemployment. Her experience has carried her across private and public sector work, from the Hill in Washington, DC, to IDEO in the heart of Silicon Valley, to rebuilding in post-Katrina New Orleans. Hilary is captivated in the exploration of identity, caste, and conflict, how culture binds and breaks our systems, and how the intersection of ancient technologies and innovation might unlock better approaches for decision-making. Her studies include a dual-degree in Economics and Political Science from Marquette University, and graduate studies in Depth Psychology from the Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, California.
