Feedback from Participants:
“I like the variety in topics covered. I think it allowed participants from different levels of technology knowledge and interests to engage.”
“As a first time attendee, I thought the fundamental series were very useful and grounding. I appreciated the shared language/tools/concepts before moving into deeper, more complex sessions.”
“The plenary panel with tech representatives was fascinating and thought provoking. I appreciated the opportunity to hear from people working for various tech giants/innovators,who are also trying to incorporate a lens towards safety.”
“I also loved how the conversations were framed around “technology isn’t the problem, the way people abuse it is”. I also appreciated the intersectional/oppression lens that many NNEDV trainers brought to the conversations (so needed).”
“New substantive info (skills, practices, etc.) that my organization can put to use to help clients. The guest speakers, the facilitators, and the information was current. Facilitators were willing to spend additional time to answer questions. I appreciate their accessibility.”
“Excellent presenters, wide range of relevant information that was accessible at various levels of tech knowledge. The schedule was roomy but also efficiently used, and the atmosphere was welcoming and filled with camaraderie. The Tech Safety team was accessible and friendly, and willing to help in any way they could.”
