“WHEN YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT… EQUITY OR EQUALITY, YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT IT FROM A HOUSING PERSPECTIVE, OR EDUCATION, OR JOBS, OR HEALTH. AND, WHAT I THINK PEOPLE DON’T REALIZE IS THAT TECHNOLOGY RUNS UNDERNEATH ALL OF THAT.”

— Elizabeth Adams, Stanford University fellow of race & technology at the Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity

To continue the discussion, we are hosting a series of Community Conversations to dig deeper into the issues around inequality in tech discussed on the listening tour and generate ideas for change.

Join us on April 27th from 1:00 – 1:45 pm ET for another Community Conversation with Colleen Ammerman and David Homa as we reflect on our recent conversation with Elizabeth Adams. We’ll explore together the roles and responsibility of government in tech and the long game of advocacy work.

We’d like to include as many perspectives as possible in these conversations, while keeping the group small enough so everyone can share their thoughts. With our limited capacity, send a note to justdigital@hbs.edu if you’re interested in joining!

All data science is political. It's impossible to take a dataset and analyze it in a 'perfectly objective' way. Because you're always going to be putting on there some type of value judgment about what the dataset represents.
