Organic Confluences Conference: Equity and Access in AgTech

Thursday, February 10, 2022 - 12:00pm to 5:00pm

The Organic Center is collaborating with the USDA ERS, California State University, Fresno, and Purdue University on a virtual conference series and hackathon examining agricultural technology (AgTech) in organic.

The conferences will examine potential opportunities for technology to support the organic sector, pitfalls when it comes to access and equity in AgTech, historical and current examples of AgTech exacerbating the pre-existing structures of racism in the food system, and methods for analyzing AgTech’s fit within organic ideals.

The two conferences will be virtual, followed by a hackathon, in collaboration with the Gathering for Open Ag Technology (GOAT), which will take place at the MOSES annual meeting with regional hubs throughout the US.

Feel free to participate in the virtual conferences even if you are not able to attend the hackathon! Register Now
