Scientific American: Examining unconscious bias in engineering

When we design and build with equity and justice in mind, we craft better solutions that respond to the complexities of entrenched systemic problems. I imagine a better future where we claim our subjectivity by sharing and celebrating our lived experience and how that motivates our work—and hold ourselves accountable to making engineering work for all.

                  

Thoughtful critique of the ways hidden biases affect the outcomes of engineering (and design). Software systems shape us and our society at a compounding rate. I hope to see more reflections like this in the future.
