Feminism & Tech: Feminist Consciousness

Public

We open this year’s Feminism & Tech series with a focus on the importance of Feminist Consciousness in the conversation.

With an introduction to the concept of Consciousness Raising (CR) from Feminist Library’s Gail Chester and – putting it in the context of tech – Magda Oldziejewska. We will also be inviting speakers from Met University and UAL, who are doing research on the topic of experiences of women in tech and starting their own women in tech groups at uni. Speakers to be confirmed.

We are inviting you to join the discussions and help us design new initiatives for tackling the problems that women still currently face in tech.

Schedule of the day:

12-1:30 Introduction to CR, theory and practice, followed by open discussion – Gail Chester, Magda Oldziejewska (others tbh)

1:30-2:15 Lunch break

2:15-3:00 Feminist Library tech tour

3:00-4:30 Workshop – Help us design new initiatives to promote women in tech & more feminist tech!
