Danielle Wood Publishes Article on Antiracist Tech Innovators

Danielle Wood published an opinion piece on innovators using technology to improve antiracist outcomes in Blavity.  Wood's piece, entitled "It's Time to Celebrate Antiracist Tech Innovators," explains that "antiracist action with technology works to ensure that the outcomes of technology design do not create or amplify inequitable experiences for people of different racial groups. " She further writes: "Technology is at the core of how we live our lives, from how we commute through our city to how we communicate with our friends and family. Public transportation, water treatment facilities, electric power plants, internet networks, county schools and city hospitals: these are all technology-enabled systems that have a duty to serve everyone, regardless of race. The reality, however, is that technologies and the systems they support often fail to meet this duty."
