A Feminist Design Think Tank recently launched with the goal to address wicked socio-economic problems through feminist technology. This initiative was based on a presentation and discussion at the Pivot 2020 Conference. After an initial meeting in August, the group will hold meetups every 2 weeks until the end of 2020. These will be breakfast/lunch/dinner/midnight snack meetings, so come with a snack and beverage that works for your time zone!
Friday, October 23, 9:00-10:00am EST
Friday, November 6, 9:00-10:00am EST
