Paula Graham from Fossbox is giving a lightning talk on diversifying design at Tech For Good
Tagged: women Toggle Comment Threads | Keyboard Shortcuts
Do you use assistive technologies? Do you have ideas about their design? Would you like to know more about ‘smart’ assistive environments and have a go at re-imagining assisted living?
We’re bringing together product design students, architecture students, makers and coders with users of assistive technology to try to come up with some innovative prototypes. You don’t need to know anything about design, tech or coding — just bring your experience and ideas! Designers and technologists need to learn from you and we hope you will also learn more about new technologies coming down the pipeline and their implications.

Fossbox has been working with OkayComputer in Manchester to start up a network for women who use FLOSS. The aim is to provide a place where women can share, learn and collaborate freely on anything from curiosity about FLOSS to organising advocacy projects. The network is called FLOSSIE and you can join the FLOSSIE mailing list here. We’ll be setting up a Facebook group shortly. Meanwhile, you can follow our tweets @flossie17
To get things going with a bang, we’re organising a women’s Software Freedom Day in London in September – join the FLOSSIE mailing list if you can help out. We’ll also be organising skill-sharing and training local events for women in Manchester and East London – more news on our blog soon.
