How white feminism has infiltrated tech and how to make space for everyone

When: Thu., March 29, 6 p.m. 2018

Numerous pieces have been written about the prevalence of sexism in the tech industry in Silicon Valley and beyond. But many are now turning their attention to another problem in the industry. Tonight’s workshop, “How white feminism has infiltrated tech and how to make space for everyone,” hosted by Prototype, a feminist makerspace, will focus on centering women and femmes of color. The discussion will feature Liana Maneese, of the Good Peoples Group. Maneese’s organization works with corporations, nonprofits and small businesses on issues like institutionalized oppression. The discussion will examine concrete ways to promote intersectional feminism in the workplace. -RA
