On-demand car-sharing platform for drivers, HyreCar Inc has recently announced their speaker for the Marketplace Risk Management Conference – Chief Operating Officer Elizabeth Reynolds. The conference covers risk management for the on-demand, gig economy space. Sponsored by Checkr, the conference will take place in San Francisco on May 21, 2018.
Reynolds will be included on the panel "The Risk Myth: Breaking Through the Digital Divide", which will be moderated by Joel Espino (Environmental Equity Legal Counsel) and accompanied by Danielle Harris, (Senior Transportation Planner, SFMTA), Sabrina Mutukisna (Founder and CEO, The Town Kitchen), K.C. Taylor (Reentry Attorney & Manager of Bay Area Partnerships), and Jennifer Yeh (Compliance Counsel, Checkr).
The panel will be discussing "The Digital Divide", which is traditionally referred to as the inequality between people who have access to the internet and those who do not.
Smartphones have largely bridged that gap, however, there is still a large inequality when it comes to the use of technology - which is a core element of our society and plays a major role in becoming employed and participating in the working class.
"Technology has the ability to provide opportunities for disadvantaged communities to thrive. HyreCar's marketplace is a great example of this, which is uniquely capable of addressing this divide and supports community development by creating jobs and strengthens local businesses," said Reynolds.
Some bigwigs of the industry are expected to attend this year, including Airbnb, Care.com, Facebook, Dolly, Google, HomeAway, Instacart, Lyft, Rover, TaskRabbit, Uber, uShip, Zillow, and Züm.
