Featured Session: There are No Girls on the !nternet? JK WE RUN IT!
Women, Black folks, the LGBTQ community, and others from traditionally marginalized backgrounds and identities have been shaping what it means to be online since the very beginning. We’re the same communities who are doing the work to make the internet and technology safer, more inclusive, and just more fun for everyone. That work is often, at best, ignored and at worst punished.
Bridget Todd is creator and host of the critically acclaimed tech and culture podcast There Are No Girls On The Internet. She is taking us on a journey through OUR history of the internet, and imagining a tech future where our voices are valued, heard, and given the space to make digital experiences better for everyone.
