Building a Better Social Media Future
Join us on Monday, April 5th to discuss the takeaways from our recent report!
👋 Join us on Monday, April 5th at 1pm ET for a conversation on building a better social media future.
Following up on our recent report, Improving Social Media: The People, Organizations and Ideas for a Better Tech Future, we will be having a conversation about building a better social media future in this timely event with Betaworks Studios (Betalab’s Fix the Internet program). This event is being moderated by Yael Eisenstat (Researcher-in-Residence at Betalab), and features Nicole Chi (civic technologist and product manager, part of Mozilla’s Fix-The-Internet incubator), Rana Sarkar (Consul General of Canada in San Francisco & Silicon Valley), and All Tech Is Human’s David Ryan Polgar.
👍Are you interested in a career in Responsible Tech? We are collaborating with NYU on a large scale Public Interest Technology Career Fair in the Fall.
“The NYU PIT-UN career fair will help students keen on building a career in public interest and responsible technology to learn about the field, connect with key players, and make long lasting connections with peers and mentors and it will help companies and organizations learn about the newest developments in the field at large.” - Dr. Mona Sloane, Affiliate at the NYU Center for Responsible AI and Adjunct Professor at NYU Tandon, as well as Fellow at the Institute for Public Knowledge (Read the full press release here)
In order to grow this needed career fair and convention, we are reaching out to potential sponsors, partners, speakers, and gathering interest from students across the country and globe who would like to attend. If you are interested in sponsorship and would like to learn more, please email us at Hello@AllTechIsHuman.org. For everyone else, please fill out the interest form.
📺Did you see the recent discussion, Beyond the Social Dilemma: Creating a More Ethical Social Media Future?
Over 1k people registered for this lively conversation about ways to improve our social media future. Moderated by David Ryan Polgar from All Tech Is Human, the discussion included Dr. Safiya Umoja Noble (Algorithms of Oppression) and Dr. Dipayan Ghosh (Terms of Disservice). Watch below! This 90-minute conversation is ideal for use in college classrooms/online learning, and was supported by the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Collegiate Program, which has the “ultimate goal is to instill a high standard of ethics in our young people.”
🤯In our last email we announced our new Responsible Tech Mentorship mentorship Program. Over 220 people have already joined!
Since our founding in 2018, we have strategically built a diverse community that cuts across civil society, government, and industry while attracting both people who are leaders in the Responsible Tech movement (check out 250+ previous speakers) and also the broad range of people looking to build a career in the nascent space. We are starting to pull these pieces together to connect mentors with those looking for mentorship. As the connective tissue for the various parts of the Responsible Tech movement, we are aiming to provide greater guidance, pathways, and opportunities to bring NEW VOICES into the ecosystem.
This goes directly to our mission, which is to build the Responsible Tech pipeline by making it more diverse, multidisciplinary, and aligned with the public interest.
Are you looking for guidance as you build your career in Responsible Tech? Or, are you actively involved in the movement and looking to share you knowledge with others? Join our Responsible Tech Mentorship Program which is currently being built out!
🤔Do you know of entry-level Responsible Tech positions or fellowships we should amplify to our community? Let us know!
One area we are working on here at All Tech Is Human is helping the vast amount of college students, grad students, young professionals, and career-changers that are looking to get their foot in the door for Responsible Tech careers. In the coming weeks, we will be showcasing more entry-level job positions and fellowships to compliment the more than 100 jobs we currently have on the Responsible Tech Job Board. Do you know of positions that should be listed? Email Rebekah Tweed at Rebekah / AllTechIsHuman.org.
Outside of the Responsible Tech Job Board, we also have robust conversation and postings of careers happening on our Slack group, which is now nearing 1.1k members! Join the Responsible Tech party.
👏Coded Bias is coming to Netflix on Monday!
We had the pleasure of discussing Coded Bias with director Shalini Kantayya, Timnit Gebru and Meredith Broussard (author of Artificial Unintelligence) in a recent livestream. This films brings forth many of the key voices working toward a better tech future. These are also voices that inspire the next generation of responsible technologists and changemakers.
🏗️All Tech Is Human is laying the groundwork for growth.
Right now we are busy building the Responsible Tech community and aiming to expand in order to fully execute on our mission of growing the Responsible Tech pipeline. If you know of likeminded foundations that may be supportive of our mission and growth (as a 501c3), please reach out at Hello@AllTechIsHuman.org
