She’s using tech for good!

Wednesday, September 30
6:00pm – 7:00pm


All UVA alumni, parents, and friends are invited to join the UVA Club of Washington, DC as DC Hoos: Front Row Wellness Series presents Tamara Dottin (ENG ’09), founder of wellness-tech platform Huemon and formerly Senior Software Engineer at OpenTable. Dottin is a passionate advocator of wellness and creating a more meaningful way for people to connect to themselves and others.

“A mind set in its own ways is wasted”: Leveraging technology for deeper levels of introspection and empathy in a fractured world

This session offers a front row seat into how a software engineer turned her skillset towards building an easy-to-access therapeutic outlet to help people combat loneliness and grow self-love. As a Black woman in tech, Tamara tapped into her own multidimensionality to create a space where people can unpack their unique personal experiences, and share in a way that different perspectives grow from open and honest connection. Join us as she shares how Huemon aims to foster a cultural shift in how we see and express vulnerability, self-reflection, and empathy.

The event will begin promptly at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday September 30th. We highly encourage you to sign in virtually at 5:50 p.m. because you will not want to miss a single moment of this program!
