We're Growing the Responsible Tech Pipeline. Want to help?
👍Let's build a better tech future by changing those involved in it. We're making the tech industry more diverse, multidisciplinary, and aligned with the public interest.
👩🏫Here are the six areas we focus on to help grow the Responsible Tech pipeline.
🤯We ran the numbers around our programs:
🙏We wanted to thank everyone reading this for the incredible support you have offered to help us get to where we are today. As we look toward a post-Covid world and what we would like to accomplish throughout 2021 and beyond, we are just starting to press the gas pedal (or electric) for growth. Our goals include making a few key hires in order to fully execute on our mission of creating pathways for new voices to enter the nascent Responsible Tech space. We have a lot in the works with building community and creating much-needed resources!
We’d love your help! All Tech Is Human is a 501c3 non-profit, through our fiscal sponsor Hopewell Fund. We recently set up a page to accept donations to help our organization expand and successfully carry out our many projects and resources.
📚Are you part of our Responsible Tech Reading Group? Attend the next discussion on June 18th around Ruha Benjamin’s Race After Technology.
Grace Juster and Felicia Chen have been doing an incredible job expanding the Responsible Tech Reading Group. The group recently voted for their next book selection and choose Race After Technology. If you are not yet a member, you can join through our Slack group.
And speaking of Slack, there is a lot happening there! Outside of the discussions around job postings, fellowships, introductions, and events, there are channels focused around Race & Technology, Gender & Technology, Teaching Tech Ethics, Shifting Tech Culture, Privacy & Technology, and more! We have a truly diverse mix of backgrounds from across the globe that are coming together.
📺We just had a livestream on reducing gender-based violence.
Thank you for everyone who joined us for our livestream, in partnership with TheBridge, on Wednesday. We had a wonderful conversation with Azmina Dhrodia (Senior Policy Manager on Gender and Data Rights at the Web Foundation) and Dhanaraj Thakur (Research Director at the Center for Democracy & Technology) and we looked at some of the issues holding back progress right now and what we can do about it.
On online GBV and gendered disinformation
On the limitations of automated multimedia content analysis and the implications for online abuse
How online gender-based violence affects the safety of young women and girls
✔️Our next meeting to help revise and expand our flagship resource, the Responsible Tech Guide, is this upcoming Monday at 12 pm ET. Join us!
The Responsible Tech Guide is aimed to providing greater understanding and pathways into the Responsible Tech field. We currently have 80 individuals as part of our group that is helping revise and expand this resource for a major release in the Fall. We are currently looking for individuals that would make ideal career profiles, education journeys, and “get to know” features in this revised guide. Do you know of a good person we should feature in the guide?
For everyone who has joined our Responsible Tech Mentorship Program, we are busy right now going through the submissions from over 200 mentees and the mentor selections they made. In addition, learnings from this mentorship program will be shared with the larger community in order to bring greater understanding with how we can help grow the Responsible Tech pipeline.
🚀We’re ready for takeoff. Want to join us?
