EFECT: Experiments in Feminist Ethical Collaborations with Technologies

EFECT: Experiments in Feminist Ethical Collaborations with Technologies. (SSHRC PDG Grant) Gardner is PI. This project tackles barriers preventing success by women and women-identified peoples in ICT/M (Internet, Communication, Technology and Media fields); we offer ethical method workbooks and computational and media literacy toolkits for use by diverse teams in education, industry and in community based groups. We develop these through anti-oppression, feminist and intersectional collaboration research with NGO partners METRAC and Blue Ribbon, with industry partners Pivotal Point and Canadian Film Centre, and university collaborators at McMaster, McGill, Concordia and University of Alberta.
