Systems change helping feminists gain influence in technology, economy, democracy & sustainability.
Women at the Table exposes the systematic exclusion of women in defining the rules – and pinpoints strategic changes to laws, regulations, and norms to achieve gender equality and strengthen democracy. We identify leverage points in the intricate yet fundamental systems that dictate women’s day-to-day lives. We also spotlight and support women change-makers in order to share multiple, varied visions of women’s leadership and innovation.
New technologies offer new opportunities including the creation of genuinely new structures that require new ideas and new teams. Gender roles being removed from the real world are being hardwired into new ADM with old and stereotypical conceptions and associations of gender, race, and class. Innovative and inclusive thinking is necessary. This imagination and skill can be provided by the largest untapped intellectual resource on the planet - women and girls. Mass scale correction of skewed data + models will require multilateral and international cooperation to ensure we leave no one behind. We must ensure machine learning does not embed an already biased system into our futures.
