How technology can help you balance the world

  1. 1. HOW TECHNOLOGY CAN HELP YOU BALANCE THE WORLD
  2. 2. TECHNOLOGY ONLY AMPLIFIES EXISTING BEHAVIOURS
  3. 3. THE FUTURIST INDUSTRY IS OVERWHELMINGLY WHITE AND MALE

  6. 6. Image: David Sipre What conference organizers answer when asked for female s Image: Caperton Gillett and Feministe Female Conference Speaker B I N G O Women just aren’t interested in this field There aren’t enough qualified female spaeakers We need big- name speakers, and few of those are women It’s a male- dominated field There aren’t a lof of women in C-level positions Both women we called were booked that weekend Both women we booked bailed at the last minute All the women were probably busy Female speakers are always burnt out from speaking so much Trying to get more female speakers is sexist You have to be bold; people arenn’t just going to invite you to present Women are shy Women only ever want to talk about women-stuff Women need to act more like men No one has complained about this before Attendees want to hear from people like themselves Well, there aren’t that many female attendees, either We’re ony responding to demand Fine, YOU tell me who they should have invited Who? I’ve never heard of her. The organizers just wanted to get the best speakers they could find You can’t kick out a male speaker just to fit a women in there FREE You can’t shoehorn in a women where she doesn’t fit Women never volunteer to present It’s a self-reinforcing cycle. Few women getting hired to speak me
  7. 7. It’s a self-reinforcing cycle. Few women getting hired to speak means fewer can become stars, which means fewer will get hired to speak. Yet, the odds that a panel might "randomly" be all men are astronomical. Work by mathematician Greg Martin suggests that all-male lineups don’t “just happen,” despite what conference organizers might claim. Source: Lauren Bacon, The Atlantic 140
  8. 8. Since the team couldn’t take on personal liability for the costs, there wa hard decision to made. That decision was: Cancel the event. Consequences of (in)visibilit Since speakers are usually ma audiences are given a narrow perspective. Fewer women ch speak, and fewer are chosen. Without the opportunity for wo serve on panels as thought lea women lack profile-building sp opportunities, an important contributor to experience and recognition. Source: The Panel Pledge The gender gap in public speaking is not random. It is the consequence of internalized cultural norms: Women’s lower inclination to speak in public and/or self-promote. Men’s greater visibility in public eye. Conference organizers’ unconscious bias.
  9. 9. Why is this a serious issue? Because of the loss of tremendous opportunities! By 2020, there will be 1.4 million jobs available in computing-related fields. US graduates are on track to fill 29% of those jobs. Women are on track to fill just 3%. THE FUTURE IS IN CODE AND I WANT WOMEN TO WRITE IT. — Kathryn Parsons, Cofounder of Decoded Coding is still the most important skill of the future. 80% of jobs in the next decade will require technological skills. Also because the lack of female perspective in science can have dramatic consequences. 318
  10. 10. Hold others accountable: – Call out bias. – Make others justify decisions. – Make decisions collectively. Suggest women or members of underrepresented groups to be speakers or panelists at events you attend. Join or donate to feminist hackerspaces. Learn to code. Set up your own website or blog. Speak up. Nominate impressive women in tech around you. 330
  11. 11. Ask your employer to review their hiring process and HR practices. Ask your employer to run unconscious bias training and only to sponsor events with anti-harassment policies. Start your own company or activist group making a change for women in technology. Watch movies and read books about female scientists or inventors. Buy science/construction toys for your daughter. Introduce your daughter to female professionals in the tech field and show her their daily jobs. Bring your daughter to a makers fair.
  12. 12. develops more open source tools and platforms. amplifies alternative and diverse narratives of women’s lived realities. regulates surveillance practices. secures a safe, healthy, and informative internet for children and young people. is completely free from online or tech-related violence. THE FUTURE OF TECH IS NOT A PRODUCT, IT’S PEOPLE
