Taking Actions as an Ally
For this talk we will focus on how we can help individuals who are systemically and subconsciously racially targeted or consistently being treated unfairly. Navigate the path to a better understanding of ally-ship through a conversation with Anastacia-Renee, a Civic Poet of Seattle. She is a hybrid genre writer, workshop facilitator, and multivalent performance artist. She is the author of four books: Forget It (Black Radish Books), (v.)(Gramma Press), Answer(Me) (Argus Press), and 26 (Dancing Girl Press).
Bring your lunch and join the conversation.

Decoding Density: Tech Spaces, Diversity, and the Marginalized Experience
Regardless of who we are, it can be alienating to walk into a setting where others we deem “like us” are nowhere to be found, or where there clearly seems to be a “lack of representation”. Regardless of our age, race, gender, body size, ability, or even clothing style, we all experience feeling left out at some point or another.
In this talk, we’ll dissect how the composition of people in space can be meaningful to us, and why it is so hard to truly create diverse environments, especially in the unique subculture of tech.
