The Human Trafficking Initiative (HTI) is an organization housed in the Heider College of Business that uses data science to collect, analyze and evaluate the scope of sex trafficking and identify corresponding policy solutions in the state of Nebraska and abroad.
On Tuesday, October 30th, the Heider College of Business and The Force, a local volunteer anti-trafficking group, will be hosting a luncheon entitled, “Connecting the Dots: A Fundraiser for the Human Trafficking Initiative.” The title of the fundraiser is symbolic of the HTI’s work, where technology and human analytics work in tandem. While HTI has already played an integral role in combating human trafficking, the need for more programmers and data scientists is great, as is funding for cloud computing server space. Any individual wishing to combat sex trafficking should attend this event.
Former FBI agent Anna Brewer, who now fights human trafficking with Omaha Women’s Fund, will join Crysta Price, co-director of HTI, and the pair will share how their work seeks the end of trafficking. All “Connect the Dots” proceeds are earmarked toward this goal.
Students and Young Professionals (under 40): $40
