In case you missed it, in November the Safety Net Australia project at WESNET hosted its inaugural Technology Summit in Sydney, NSW. The summit was attended by nearly 100 people who saw speakers ranging from international technology safety experts, Telstra’s chief scientist, and representatives from major technology companies: Facebook, Twitter, Telstra, and Google.
Presenters spoke on a range of topics, from the “Internet of Things” to “Resisting Violence Against Women.” For more about what was discussed that day, check out our storify. The day’s discussion was passionate, edifying, and thoroughly geeky – and we even trended on Twitter!
The Technology Summit will be an annual event, with experts from across Australia and internationally focusing on technology and violence against women. This Summit is specifically for anyone interested in technology and violence against women. We welcome front-line workers, technologists, police, magistrates, academics, and anyone who has an interest in this intersection.
We hope you can join us next year. Check back for more details.
