Digital Positivity – Keeping Kids Safe Online

May 5 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

JOIN US ONLINE FOR THIS LIVE EVENT Featuring Expert Trisha Prabhu!

Amidst the many challenges COVID-19 has presented, it has also threatened the digital positivity and safety that we strive to create for our children. With young people increasingly living their lives online (taking classes, connecting with the world, etc.), the result, we fear, may be online hate. Join ReThink Founder and CEO Trisha Prabhu for a conversation on tackling cyberbullying, and empowering young people to be the best they can online. This program will include a discussion of cyberbullying – what it is (in its many forms), who it most impacts, and why science says it happens, as well as a comprehensive introduction to the ReThink tool, an app that encourages tweens and teens to make positive decisions online. Parents/educators will learn the most recent, important facts about cyberbullying, as well as gain exposure to an up-and-coming tool to address it. We hope you’ll join us!

REGISTER NOW! Only those who RSVP, will receive a link to access the event.

We thank you for being a part of this deeply important conversation.

About Our Speaker:

Trisha Prabhu is a 19-year-old innovator, social entrepreneur, global advocate and inventor of ReThink™, a patented technology and an effective way to detect and stop online hate. She is currently pursuing her undergraduate education at Harvard University in Cambridge, MA, USA.

As a CEO and social entrepreneur, Trisha has received world-wide acclaim in the business world. In 2016, President Obama and the U.S. State Department invited Trisha to the Global Entrepreneurship Summit, to showcase her work and share her story with other entrepreneurs. Not long after, ReThink was featured on ABC’s hit T.V. show, Shark Tank. In 2019, ReThink was the winner of Harvard University’s President’s Global Innovation Challenge & Harvard College’s i3 entrepreneurial Challenge. Trisha is the first ever Harvard College freshman to win the Harvard University’s President Innovation Grand Prize.

Trisha has also been honored with awards and recognition for her ingenuity in inventing, building, and launching ReThink. For her research and scientific inquiry, Trisha was named a 2014 Google Science Fair Global Finalist. She was awarded the 2016 MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) INSPIRE Aristotle Award, as well as the 2016 University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Illinois High School Innovator Award. She has the esteemed distinction of showcasing and sharing her ReThink technology at the White House Science Fair at the invitation of President Obama.

For her advocacy, public service, and her commitment to leading an anti-cyberbullying movement, Trisha was selected as a 2015 Global Teen Leader by the We Are Family Foundation, conferred the 2016 WebMD Health Hero of the Year Prodigy Award, and received the Anti-Bullying Champion Award by the International Princess Diana Awards, the Global Anti-Bullying Hero Award from Auburn University, and the Upstander Legacy Celebration Award from the Tyler Clementi Foundation. She is also a proud recipient of several other awards, including the Daily Points of Light Honor, awarded by the George H. W. Bush Foundation for extraordinary social volunteering and service.

Trisha has also helped lead a rallying cry against online hate. To date, she has shared her vision and power of “ReThink” at 38 keynotes in 24 cities at platforms and stages including TED, TEDx, Wired, La Ciudad de Las Ideas, SAP, Girls Who Code, the Family Online Safety Institute, universities, schools, and more.
