When we hear the word “platform,” we frequently think technology.  But the technology we use, and our participation in it as workers and users is framed in a larger and institutional context.  Instead of considering technology as a platform, what if we considered a value and outcome the platform? In this case, what does it mean to have equitable participation and advancement, in other words, equity as a platform? We’ll talk through equality vs. equity, ask attendees to reflect amongst themselves, and consider how we re-architect the future of technology if we make equity the platform.
