2021 Tech and Racial Equity Conference: Anti-Racist Technologies for a Just Future

Rapidly developing technologies can be an unprecedented force for good, but too often codify and amplify existing forms of racial inequality, discrimination, and bias. This free, online conference brings together researchers, policymakers, technologists, and advocates to address technology’s new threats to racial equity and new tools for a more just future.

The confrence will conclude with the 16th Annual Anne & Loren Kieve Distinguished Lecture by Ruha Benjamin, Professor of African American studies at Princeton University, founding director of the Ida B. Wells Just Data Lab and author of Race After Technology.

The conference is sponsored by the Stanford Center for Comparative Studies in Race & Ethnicity (CCSRE), Digital Civil Society Lab (DCSL) at the Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society, and Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence (HAI).
