Digital inequality:A Discussion on Technology, Race and Politics in America

September 30 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

What is the role of social media and technology in politics? As waves of protests against racism surge in the U.S, during an election year, we ask what role has technology played in politics. Are black people and people of colour affected adversely by issues plaguing technology, for example, like digital access? This panel serves as a starting point to discussing what racism and tearing down racist structures means in online spaces.

Speakers:
Dr. Nicol Turner Lee-  Senior Fellow-Governance Studies, Center for Technology Innovation Brookings Institution
Mutale Nkonde- Founder & CEO AI for the People (AFP), Fellow-Berkman Klein Centre for Internet and Society Harvard University
Monica Anderson-Associate Director of Research-Pew Research Centre

Moderator:
David Mbai-Master of Arts in Law and Diplomacy Candidate
