Well done for completing week 1! We have looked at how to start talking about race, and why this matters. We explored what we mean when we talk about racism in technology and technology systems on individuals, business and society.

Next week, we will start looking at anti-racism and how it can be built into technology development processes, as well as day to day life.

In the comment section below, share with everyone something that you’ve learnt so far that has been surprising, interesting or enlightening to you. See you in Week 2.
