Programmed Inequality

Speaker: Mar Hicks

Mar Hicks, Author, Historian and Professor

This talk looks at labor and gender in computing’s history, and explains why understanding this history is still important to current practitioners in computing fields. Using the British and U.S. contexts as examples, the talk explores why we might need to rethink current discourses of “diversity in tech” in order to place more emphasis on undoing historical, systemic harms, both inside and outside of tech.
