In today’s climate, we find ourselves relying on technology more than ever before across different facets of our lives. Although technology has the power to drive positive change, rarely do we consider the existence and consequences of discrimination in technology and data. In today’s special episode of The Edge, host Michelle Boockoff- Badjek is joined by colleague Bethelly Jean-Louis, communications intern and senior at Emerson College, to delve into the topic of intersection between technology, bias, and culture with Dr. Ruha Benjamin, esteemed professor of African American studies at Princeton University and author of Race After Technology: Abolitionist Tools for the New Jim Code
