Event description

Description

We’re turning one! It’s been a year since we first got together to discuss and imagine what a technology community for folks who identify as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of colour) could look like in Toronto.

We are kicking off 2019 with another community co-design session! Come hang out with other BIPOCs interested in technology and participate in a collaborative brainstorming session. Join us to share your ideas for what kinds of events, programming, and initiatives you’d like to see IntersectTO plan for BIPOCs when it comes to digital justice, creating community, and learning tech skills. We want your input, we’ll also be working on updating a list of shared values and ideas on governance and decision-making.

Food

A free, light dinner will be provided, with vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options

About IntersectTO

IntersectTO is a Toronto-based community group for people who identify as Black, Indigenous, and people of colour (BIPOC), who are interested in technology. Our vision is to create an online and in-person space where BIPOCs can learn tech skills, find collaborators, and hold critical discussions on how technology affects communities of colour. IntersectTO is located on the territory of the Huron-Wendat and Petun First Nations, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River.
