The focus of this session is on tool and capacity building with indigenous communities as mixed or non-indigenous tech teams and project collaborators.
Panelist will share details on successful initiatives centering indigenous rights, describe how digital inclusion is being imagined for indigenous led initiatives, and drawing connections between local and international projects. At the heart of the conversation is revealing better ways for non-indigenous organizations to engage with indigenous communities.
Together we will generate fresh perspectives and approaches to how we as technologists work with marginalized communities locally and globally.
