This year our theme is “Futures for all”. In order to manifest futures for everyone, we need diverse perspectives and platforms that elevate more voices in discussions around where we are heading. We often fail to question who the future is created for, how it is made accessible, whose interests are promoted, and how power and agency are redistributed in its envisioning. However, these questions are hard to ask when technology is only imagined and designed by a small group of people working within the industry.
