My Technology Will Be Intersectional or It Will Be Bullshit!

People have been talking a lot about diversity in technology, but talking isn’t enough. We need to move beyond focusing on one group and start getting everyone involved. It’s not really diversity until we start to account for the intersections of different types of people and actively do something.

In this talk, we will learn about intersectionality, discuss the importance of diversity, and identify things that we all can do to improve the situation. This talk will give you a reason to care about diversity and some tools to work towards improving it. It might even inspire you to join me in my rallying cry of “my technology will be intersectional or it will be BULLSHIT!”
