Empowerment. What does that even mean?

this Topic will be presented by Laura Laugwitz

at May meetup 2015, hosted by Tobias Pfeiffer

It's not as non-tech as you might think! Empowerment is basically the term that keeps popping up when it comes to solving that issue with marginalized groups (think: more than just women!) within IT. This talk will give you a definition of empowerment that stems from activism and social sciences, not advertising agencies and social media campaigns. It will give you the opportunity to understand reproduction of inequality first on a systemic level and then on an individual one. And then there might even be some answers on how to undermine this system. Some cautious ones and some revolutionary.
