Event description

Description

Author, content strategist, and UX consultant Sara Wachter-Boettcher will give a talk based on her new book, Technically Wrong: Sexist Apps, Biased Algorithms, & Other Threats of Toxic Tech—a revealing look at how tech industry biases and blind spots get baked into the digital products we use every day. She’ll discuss where tech has gone wrong, why public backlash is coming (and that’s a good thing), and how designers, UXers and content strategists can be part of the solution.

Sara Wachter-Boettcher is a Philly-based content strategy and user experience expert who has worked on the web since 2005. As the principal of Rare Union, she’s led projects and facilitated workshops for Fortune 100 corporations, education and research institutions, and startups. She is the co-author, with Eric Meyer, of Design for Real Life from A Book Apart, and the author of Content Everywhere from Rosenfeld Media. Technically Wrong (W.W. Norton) is her first mainstream book.
