Whose technology? A tool for social justice or of control?
The Canadian Research Institute for the Advancement of Women (CRIAW-ICREF) invites you to join our virtual Parallel Event held as part of the NGO CSW67 Forum.

Information and communications technologies (ICTs) are often portrayed as neutral, but it is well documented that these technologies reproduce inequalities, systemic discrimination, racism, misogyny, and are used by governments to facilitate surveillance and oppression. This participatory, interactive parallel event will be held with feminists globally to evaluate the transformational potential and the limitations of using information and communications technologies (ICTs) for feminist organizing. We will focus on how ICTs are used by “Big Tech” corporations and governments to maintain power and reproduce inequalities, and how might feminist principles guide a regulatory framework for accountability.

This event will facilitate knowledge-sharing and network-building to strengthen our collective analysis of ICTs in relation to unequal power relations and feminist organizing. At the end of speakers' presentations, audience members will continue the conversation in breakout rooms. Audience members will be asked to share how ICTs are used to maintain power and reproduce inequalities in their own contexts and how might feminist principles guide a regulatory framework.

CRIAW-ICREF will produce a summary report of the collective analysis and actions shared by speakers and participants to facilitate knowledge-sharing. The information collected through this registration form and during the event will be kept confidential.
