Technology for Social Justice: Field Scan Workshop

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

There’s a lot of feel-good talk about technology and social change, but what does it look like to really use technology as a tool for liberation? In this session, the Open Technology Institute and Research Action Design will share preliminary findings from the Technology for Social Justice field scan and conduct a focus group with participants. You will leave with a better understanding of work at the intersection of technology and social change, and help shape the future of this growing field.
