Digital Undergrounds: Tools for Radicals and Futurists
People's Food Co-op

We hear a lot about the entrepreneurs, engineers, and companies that shape the digital landscape. But what about the communities that radicalize and transform the world, enacting power from below, using digital technology?

With a series of guest speakers and artists from Portland’s tech and creative scene, we will examine:

  • The question of digital globalization and the emergence of tech in Africa, Latin America, and in indigenous communities.
  • What it means to be an engineer: How do gender, race, and place affect who is recognized as such, and who is not?
  • The relationship of Black aesthetics, girl culture, and the global arts to the digital world, which draws heavily from this creativity in form and content.
  • Ways to advocate for distributing digital resources to marginalized groups in the Portland area and beyond.

Instructor: Ali Colleen Neff, Ph.D. is a digital anthropologist, UX researcher, and the founder of CultureEncode, a center for advocacy and consulting for digital diversity.

FutureTalks: Future of You, Right Within
Online

Join us for a series of discussions this quarter on building and healing the foundation for the future of you, your career, and your influence working in technology.

To kick us off, February's FutureTalks will focus on the healing we all need in order to create the best foundation for our future self. Tracy Williams, New Relic’s Chief People and Diversity Officer will facilitate this virtual fireside chat with Minda Harts exploring her journey to writing her new book, Right Within. In this intimate discussion with Minda and Tracy we'll be exploring courageous conversations, bold teachings when healing from racial traumas, and what tech companies can do to integrate courageous practices for all getting Right Within for their future.

“In workplaces nationwide, women of color need frank talk and honest advice on how to deal with microaggressions, heal from racialized trauma, and find relief from invisible workplace burdens. Through action points, exercises, and clear-eyed coaching, Minda Harts encourages women to summon hidden reserves of strength and courage. She includes advice from therapists and faith leaders of color on a full range of ways to heal. Right Within will help women of color strengthen their resolve across corporate America, ensuring that we can all, finally, rise together.”
