Technological Empowerment 101 for Femmes of Color

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Femmes of color are important creators of online media content, but are too often excluded from technology circles which can feel alienating, or otherwise discouraging. During this session we will introduce resources for learning anything from HTML and CSS to privacy or copyright law. Participants will hopefully walk away with relieved anxiety and a better sense of where and how to keep learning!
