“I #Choosetochallenge harmful gender biases in tech. Technology isn’t neutral but reflects the biases of its creators. Unfortunately, those designing and developing technology today are not a very diverse group, and the group is dominated by men. As such, digital products often reproduce dominant, harmful norms and stereotypes.
By embracing the inherent bias in technology, we can develop digital products that help us challenge harmful norms and stereotypes, and that nudge us towards more inclusive behaviours. I challenge those designing and developing digital products to create Equality Tech.”
