Technology & Racial Equity Graduate Fellowship

From 2021-2023, the Center for Comparative Studies in Race & Ethnicity (CCSRE), in partnership with the Stanford Ethics Society & Technology Hub, hosted a graduate fellowship program designed to create:

  • a supportive community of graduate students working to advance racial equity in and through technology,
  • public-facing collaborative projects that expand the understanding of racial equity and technology,
  • an interdisciplinary space to workshop graduate student research.

The fellowship fostered collaboration between engineers researching technical systems and social scientists, humanists and others researching the power and politics that shape society. Through the program, graduate students from across the university examined the ways that new technologies codify and amplify existing forms of racial inequality, discrimination, and bias, as well as possibilities for advancing racial justice through technology. Interdisciplinary, cross-sector research and interventions may help to avoid harm in these systems and may even serve to advance racial justice. 

This program is currently on hiatus.
