Welcome to yet another episode of the Tech for Good Live podcast. It’s a podcast all about using technology to have a positive social impact. Most of the time though we’re just whining about Amazon being the absolute worst.
In this episode we are talking about digital poverty and the massive impact it has on society.
An open letter has been sent to the Charity Commission and is calling on the regulator to act now to close the gap on diversity data at the senior management and board level in the sector. We explore that a little bit.
AND… After the supreme court in the US stripped women of their basic human rights by overturning Roe Vs Wade, tech companies are trying to respond. An update by Google will automatically flag and delete any visits to abortion clinics from a user’s location history.
Our special guest for this episode is Rebs Curtis-Moss. Rebs is an Interim Social Media Manager at Shelter.
