Technology, Inclusiveness, Structural Racism, and Silicon Valley

October 15 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

The UNC Center for Media Law and Policy will host a panel discussion on “Technology, Inclusiveness, Structural Racism, and Silicon Valley.” The impact technology plays on society and the evolving roles within our cultural and social lives continues to grow. Much of this affects the racial justice and inequality within our society. In this discussion, David Ardia, associate professor of law and faculty co-director of the UNC Center for Media Law and Policy, will lead a conversation that explores how the major tech companies will inevitably be judged by their impact on racial justice and inequality in America. The panelists on the discussion include:

  • Amelia Gibson, Assistant Professor, UNC  School of Information and Library Science
  • Rachel Kuo, Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Center for Information, Technology, and Public Life
  • Ted Shaw, Julius L. Chambers Distinguished Professor of Law and Director of the Center for Civil Rights, UNC School of Law
  • Jim Steyer, CEO/ founder of Common Sense Media and editor of Which Side of History? How Technology is Reshaping Democracy and Our Lives,
  • Francesca Tripodi, Assistant Professor, UNC School of Information and Library Science; Senior Faculty Researcher, Center for Information, Technology, and Public Life
