Reconvene By Eventbrite: “The Art of Gathering” Author Priya Parker with Julia Hartz
Priya Parker, author of “The Art of Gathering” and founder of “Thrive Labs,” joins Eventbrite CEO Julia Hartz for an inspiring conversation around the heightened purpose of gathering during the waning days of the Coronavirus. Parker helps launch the virtual Reconvene summit by encouraging experience designers and event producers to ask themselves why they’re producing their events and why people choose to attend them. Parker answers her questions concisely. We gather because we need each other. Gatherings are moments that bind people. They are opportunities to share your purposes and values with others. Parker believes that designing experiences in the After-Coronavirus economy presents opportunities for event producers to learn from past missteps and create something new. Listening to Parker talk about the purposes behind experiences is transformative. It also makes one excited about the next wave of events.
“What does your invitation say? It’s not just logistics about the date, time, and place. The invitation tells a story.” – Priya Parker, author of “The Art of Gathering.”

Bush and Cole are collaborating to create partnerships in tech and expand the talent pipeline, but they agree that there’s more work to be done in underrepresented communities. More tech companies are prioritizing diversity and inclusion when it comes to hiring. It’s exciting to see Bush and Cole build a growing community of Black female scientists in Artificial Intelligence.
