How Does Implicit Bias in Tech Shape Our World?

Thursday, April 29, 2021 (1:00 PM - 2:30 PM) (PDT)

Description

In this session we will provide a series of real world examples of how implicit bias around race, sex, gender and sexuality shape research and development and how this impacts tech users.

In this session we make the case for why incorporating DEI into the world of tech makes for better products and better companies.

We've partnered with Leah Shumka, Manager of Sexualized Violence Education, Prevention and Support at the faculty of Equity and Human Rights, UVic to explore DEI in an interactive format with actionable next steps.  

Please take the time to share your questions with us as part of the registration process so that we can make this session as applicable and actionable as possible. 

We want to make this session as accessible as possible and continue this work in our community. All ticket sales directly fund the continuation of our DEI education offerings.
