Tech Worker Coalition Learning Groupp, Session 1
Topic of this month: algorithmic bias and discrimination in automated hiring practices
Main reading: Weapons of Math Destruction by Cathy O'Neil, chapter 6 (mandatory) and chapter 1 (optional)
Estimated reading time: 1-2 hours. -=- What is it: if you're not familiar with the concept of a learning group/reading group, let me tell what is it about: we are a group of people reading the same content and meeting once a month to discuss and debate it. We connect it to personal experiences, other readings we did, we try to understand in depth the ideas of the author and eventually find flaws and point to other readings. The ultimate objective is to become more knowledgeable in the topics of interest, that in the case of our own reading group consist of the ethical, social and political impact of digital technology and the IT industry.
If you're interested, you can just show up after reading the content or you can contact me to be added to our Signal group.
