Racial Justice at Work: How Algorithms Automate Bias

Season #4

For too long, tech has been overwhelmingly dominated by the white male perspective. In order to achieve racial justice and truly move toward socially conscious design in tech and artificial intelligence (AI), allies must ask themselves if they are prepared to give up power in order to ensure equity for all.

In this companion podcast for Racial Justice at Work: Practical Solutions for Systemic Change (Berrett-Koehler Publishers, 2023), lead author Mary-Frances Winters and special projects editor Gabrielle Gayagoy Gonzalez sit down with Megan Ellinghausen, Marketing and Branding Specialist at The Winters Group, Inc., to explore her chapter, “How Algorithms Automate Bias.” Listen in as they interrogate the different ways that tech and AI uphold systemic racism and tune in to the discussion on actions you can take to protect your peace and curate your social media with intention.
