Who is part of technology development, who funds that development, and how we put technology to use all influence the outcomes that are possible. To change those outcomes, we must – all of us – shift our relationship to technology, how we use it, build it, fund it, and more. Join the High Tech Law Institute for a book talk with Afua Bruce, co-author of The Tech That Comes Next and leader in equitable design and use of new technologies – in a conversation centered around how to ask big questions and make change from wherever you are today. During the talk, which is co-sponsored by the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics, Afua will share ideas and conversations across sectors from artificial intelligence to data collection, community-centered design to collaborative funding, and social media to digital divides. Technology and equity are inextricably connected, and her book, The Tech That Comes Next will help you accelerate change for the better. AFUA BRUCE is a leading public interest technologist who has spent her career working at the intersection of technology, policy, and society. Her career has spanned the government, non-profit, private, and academic sectors, as she has held senior science and technology positions at DataKind, the White House, the FBI, and IBM. Afua has a bachelor’s degree in computer engineering, as well as an MBA.
