About this Event

We have a crisis of accountability. Big technology companies wield more unfettered power over vast numbers of people than most national governments. Too often, technology happens to us, rather than with us. We don’t have a vote. We don’t have any say!

We must correct this massive power imbalance by giving our communities the agency and fluency to engage with tech systems from the outset—as partners and as stakeholders. It’s a new approach to learning, research and advocacy around how technology is created and deployed. We then equitably exercise our newfound capacity within trusted spaces—where we can all collaborate in shaping our future.

This time of urgency also presents an immediate window of opportunity. And it’s for nothing less than to re-imagine relationships between tech companies, governments, educational institutions, and communities.

And it’s for nothing less than to re-imagine relationships between tech companies, governments, educational institutions, and communities. In the tech space, a small number of players wield more power than many national governments. We need to give our communities the agency and fluency to engage with technology as partners, creators, leaders, and stakeholders. It’s a profound act of democracy as we learn, research and advocate for a more equitable approach to innovation. By exercising our newfound capacity within trusted spaces, we can all collaborate in shaping our future.

Join us for this virtual gathering so we can make scalable, sustainable change through our new endeavor: MIRA!. Bring your ideas for projects and collaborations (we will share ours) as we exercise transformative change through these deep new partnerships. Together, we can engage in a momentous act of re-imagination and agency.
