GM Responsible Tech Collective | Co-Production Roundtable
Join the GM Responsible Tech Collective as we explore how co-production can play a part as we work to bring home the humanity to tech
The GM Responsible Tech Collective is a cross-sector community of organisations working to establish Greater Manchester as an examplary regon for ethical tech.
With a mission of bringing home the humanity to tech, its people-powered smart city and racial equaity in tech projects are being co-produced with those people whose lives and communities are most impacted by businesses, local authorities and the decisions they make about the tech they use and create.
Looking to better understand the potential of co-production and what best practice looks like, we're bringing together experts and practitioners from across Greater Manchester's digital ecoystem to discuss the power and pitfalls of co-production, and how we as a collective can better embed it into our own organisations as well as shared initiatives.
