“We always think about the socio-demographic factors of how technologies are built, intersect with socio-demographic factors such as race, gender and sexual orientation. And it is really important that those who are building these technologies are aware, are reflective of our diverse backgrounds, ideas, our beliefs, all of that. That is how we get our future technology right.” Sinead Bovell, Founder, WAYE and Youth Tech Leader
For 5 episodes of Technology for Good, we are focusing on technological challenges and opportunities through the eyes of some incredible and inspirational women in tech, in the run up to and during the ITU Plenipotentiary Conference, or PP-22. This major event will gather policymakers from ITU’s 193 member states to take decisions that will shape the future of technology, making it greener, more gender and youth inclusive and more accessible to everyone on our planet.
This podcast is the seventeenth episode of Technology for Good- an ITU podcast series that focuses on how technology is helping to shape the world around us.
