The Civic Tech Innovation Network (CTIN), in partnership with the International Civil Society Centre (ICSCentre), is pleased to announce that we will be hosting a webinar titled ‘Building Inclusive Communities’ as part of its Digital Dialogues Series. As we celebrate International Women’s Day, the question of building inclusive communities focuses on amplifying women’s (and other underrepresented) voices in civic tech by highlighting the work they do. This session, moderated by malebo sephodi, hopes to unpack the role of digital innovations in facilitating inclusivity and diversity within civic tech. In exploring this, the session will pose these questions among others; how do we amplify underrepresented voices in civic tech? Is building an inclusive civic tech community merely about highlighting digital innovations or leveraging the same digital innovations to intentionally highlight and amplify diverse voices within the space? How do we make sure this happens?
