Tech Futures Lab presents: Designing Equality

A bias-busting sprint to tackle the issue of man-centric design.

What's it all about?

From voice recognition systems that prefer masculine tones, to search algorithms that reinforce gender stereotypes; from awkward lapel mics to boob-crushing seatbelts, eye-watering bike seats and more, design based on a 'male default' is exposing women to discomfort, discrimination and even danger.

Tech Futures Lab invites you to tackle a design issue through the female gaze in a mini design sprint, facilitated by the Lab's GM Sarah Hindle and Director of Innovation, Priti Ambani. Join us to explore a different perspective, hone your innovation skills and smash the patriarchy! All genders welcome.

This event is restricted to 30 attendees, so secure your spot quick!

You can drop into this event at any time.
