From Bellwether Housing Event page:

As part of Affordable Housing Week, Bellwether will host a panel discussion focused on the role the tech sector can play in solving the affordable housing crisis featuring three local industry leaders. Rebekah Bastian, VP of Product at Zillow, Ethan Phelps-Goodman, founder of Seattle Tech 4 Housing and Seattle in Progress, and Jonathan Sposato, CEO of PicMonkey and creator of WeCount.org, will share their insights about leveraging technology and the human capital of Seattle tech companies for social good. Bellwether’s CEO Susan Boyd will moderate the discussion, which is free and open to the public and will include light refreshments.

The panel discussion is from 5 – 6:30pm on Tuesday, May 16th at Bellwether’s offices located at 433 Minor Ave N, Seattle, WA 98109 in the South Lake Union neighborhood.

Affordable Housing Week is organized by the Housing Development Consortium of King County to draw attention to the importance of creating more affordable housing in Seattle/King County and how its members are tackling that challenge. Bellwether Housing is Seattle’s largest non-profit provider of affordable housing, with over 1,900 units throughout the city that families, low-wage working people, seniors, and adults with disabilities call home.

We look forward to hearing from these three tech leaders about how their sector can play a role in expanding affordable housing opportunities. For more information, please contact events@bellwetherhousing.org.
