From mediawiki.org

Introduction[edit]

The purpose of this document is to help the DEI Product Development team aggregate and summarize its collective knowledge to make it easier for us to build a common foundation, and leverage the knowledge of others.  

Structure[edit]

This annotated bibliography is organized in three parts:

  • a table of contents by theme
  • an alphabetical review of the most relevant or influential articles, papers and book chapters
  • and a list of further reading.

Each entry includes full reference details; categorization by theme and type; a set of keywords; a summary of the principal findings and how they connect to the research question; and in most cases, cross-references to relevant reviewed items, and suggested additional reading.

Items that have a digital copy in the repository are noted in each entry or marked by an asterisk [*].

Summary The praxis-oriented interdisciplinary field of feminist technology studies (FTS) has done most among the social sciences to build a vibrant and coherent school of gender and technology studies. Given their shared commitment to exploring emergent forms of power in the contemporary world, there is surprisingly little dialogue between FTS and mainstream cultural anthropology. This review begins by outlining FTS and its concepts and methods

Summary 1. The Power Chapter

Principle #1 of Data Feminism is to Examine Power. Data feminism begins by analyzing how power operates in the world.


2. Collect, Analyze, Imagine, Teach

Principle #2 of Data Feminism is to Challenge Power. Data feminism commits to challenging unequal power structures and working toward justice.


3. On Rational, Scientific, Objective Viewpoints from Mythical, Imaginary, Impossible Standpoints

Principle #3 of Data Feminism is to Elevate Emotion and Embodiment. Data feminism teaches us to value multiple forms of knowledge, including the knowledge that comes from people as living, feeling bodies in the world.


4. “What Gets Counted Counts”

Principle #4 of Data Feminism is to Rethink Binaries and Hierarchies. Data feminism requires us to challenge the gender binary, along with other systems of counting and classification that perpetuate oppression.


5. Unicorns, Janitors, Ninjas, Wizards, and Rock Stars

Principle #5 of Data Feminism is to Embrace Pluralism. Data feminism insists that the most complete knowledge comes from synthesizing multiple perspectives, with priority given to local, Indigenous, and experiential ways of knowing.


6. The Numbers Don’t Speak for Themselves

Principle #6 of Data Feminism is to Consider Context. Data feminism asserts that data are not neutral or objective. They are the products of unequal social relations, and this context is essential for conducting accurate, ethical analysis.


7. Show Your Work

Principle #7 of Data Feminism is to Make Labor Visible. The work of data science, like all work in the world, is the work of many hands. Data feminism makes this labor visible so that it can be recognized and valued.

Theme How Ms Jean-Baptiste leads inclusive product development at Google.  She is interviewed in the Black Women Tech Talk series.
Keywords Inclusive, product development, Google

Summary At Google, they use 12 dimensions of diversity.  She doesn’t go into what those are.  There may be times when one dimension is more dominant in the discussion.

She emphasizes asking “who else”.  Broaden your team’s thinking.  Make sure that you start with equity:  don’t just have an inclusive story, it really needs to be an inclusive product from the start.  Tell about real people with real stories.

4 key points in the product design process process that they focus on for inclusion:

  1. Ideation
  2. User research and design
  3. User testing
  4. Marketing

She makes it clear that the business case is strong for inclusion.  Who is using your product?  Who benefits from it?  What are the side-effects of building inclusively for one group?
