    Roundtable: Recognizing and Combating Misogyny in Tech Culture

    As subcultures in tech move in to the mainstream and underrepresented groups within these subcultures gain a greater voice, reactionary fears are developing which threaten to undermine important social progress. This is particularly true of efforts to address the iniquity resultant from the stark gender imbalance in many tech subcultures.

    This roundtable discussion will feature several important speakers who will share perspectives which are necessary to consider when sizing up the problems of misogyny in tech culture, along with their ideas on how to combat the problem. Included are:

      Arthur Chu - Blogger on geek culture, voice-over artist, and Jeopardy! champion
      Sherry Mong - Assistant professor of sociology and criminology at Capital University
      Shannon Haddox - Software Developer at Primary Solutions and computer science student at Capital University

    The discussion will take place at the Capital University Bridge of Learning (Ruff Learning Center, room 260) on Tuesday, March 3rd from 2:15 to 3:15 and is open to the public. All Columbus area students and interested residents are welcome to attend. Doors open at 2:00 and seats are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

    Organizers:

      Joseph Kendall-Morwick - Assistant Professor of computer science at Capital University
      Victor Stasek - Software Developer at Primary Solutions and computer science student at Capital University
