2020 Tapia Conference

Technological Needs of the Black Collective

Wednesday, September 16, 2020 (Central Time) — 3:45PM - 4:30PM

This BOF will focus on the vacancies and need areas in technology and technology research for the advancement of the Black collective. Sub-groups within the Black community have different needs that need to be addressed differently and appropriately for that sub-population. Additionally, these differences in needs affect the type of technology that should be designed and implemented for each sub-group within the Black community. This discussion does not seek to criticize the work that has been done and currently being done to make technology more inclusive for overlooked and marginalized groups, such as the Black community. Rather, this BOF will offer discussion about how technology can be used, when appropriate, to address the varying needs within the Black community.
