Covid-19 has had a dramatic impact on remote work and the tech workforce, with individuals facing increased risks in areas like online harassment and overall violence directed at them. Join us for collaborative conversations with three leading researchers - McKensie Mack and Yang Hong - who have been studying the phenomena from an intersectional lens. Notably, their most recent report is one of the first to include impacts on trans and non gender binary respondents. Specifically they will address:
- Results of their findings, which overall has seen an increase in harm and hostility against different types of workers.
- How to engage in intersectional data science, and safe user research
- This is a conversation not to be missed!
// We will be hosting a 20 minute post-workshop networking exercise to allow folks to meet others who share their interest, and strengthen collaborations across various lines. Make sure to schedule in 20 minutes extra on your calendar, if you are interested in joining //
