“In our world, divide and conquer must become define and empower.” Audre Lorde
As the digital world races forward with seemingly unstoppable force, our stellar international panel will invite reflections on Rights in the digital world, focussing on gender, who is protected, who is included, who is excluded, and how those excluded by design are reclaiming power and designing a radically inclusive digital world. Drawing both on their research as well as their personal experiences, they will investigate why and how the digital landscape has come to be so, and what practical steps can be taken to design a safer, more brilliant, and more inclusive reality.
