  • Women, Technology, and Power: A Workshop to Design the Future

    November 16, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
    Women's Center for Creative Work, 2425 Glover Pl, Los Angeles, CA 90031, USA

    Women, Technology, and Power: A Workshop to Design the Future
    Presented by Ahree Lee & Susan Edwards
    $3 (no one turned away for lack of funds)

    In this hands-on workshop, we will use the design thinking process to design a radically different future where labor has no gender and women and men feel equally empowered to craft and code. Design thinking is a creative problem solving methodology taught by Stanford University and popularized by technology companies. We will learn the five steps in the design thinking process -- empathize, define, ideate, prototype, and test -- and create artifacts from the future. By sharing design thinking beyond the confines of Silicon Valley as an empowerment tool for all people, regardless of gender and level of privilege, we will create a new narrative surrounding women, technology, and the power systems of society.

  • WCCW Members Friendsgiving

    November 22, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
    Women's Center for Creative Work, 2425 Glover Pl, Los Angeles, CA 90031, USA

    WCCW Members Friendsgiving
    Presented by WCCW
    FREE

    Happy Friendsgiving! WCCW members and a guest of their choice are invited to join together and eat good food. Please bring a dish to share, beverages will be provided.

    While we recognize that by celebrating this holiday without acknowledging its history we unintentionally re-perpetuate a white-washed colonial narrative, we also recognize that for many people Thanksgiving has shifted from the “Pilgrims & Indians narrative” and come to mean something else: a celebration of togetherness, generosity, and gratitude with friends and family.

    This holiday season, we invite our members to come together for a vegan potluck, to find solace & celebrate in a community working towards a reparative and transformative world through connection and support.

    And in the spirit of subverting / critiquing pervasive capitalist & colonial ways of being, we'll share ideas for decolonizing future Thanksgiving celebrations!
