Digital Dependencies, Discrimination, and Democracy: What are Philanthropy’s Roles?

Every aspect of public life depends on digital systems. Awareness and adaptation to the potential harms of digital systems is critical to pursuing positive change. Black women are leading the way in scholarship and advocacy regarding the intersections of digital systems, racism and discrimination - in every domain of action from community advocacy to education and healthcare. We’ll work from community-based data justice efforts, scholarship on digital identity, and advocacy around artificial intelligence to demonstrate ways that foundations can “upgrade” their strategies to fit our digital reality.
