The digital rights and human rights space is made up of a diverse set of actors, many with distinct programmatic, technologic, and funding needs. This workshop will map this landscape with respect to various populations: women, LGBT, developers, indigenous groups, etc.. We will break up into population working groups with the goals of answering specific questions:
What are the current threats presenting barriers to distinct populations obtaining outcomes?
What tools could help these barriers be overcome?
What funding resources exist specifically for these populations?
In what ways is the current funding schemes failing these populations?
The breakout groups will reconvene at the end of the session to report back on where they each see their distinct population’s threats and resources, and the session organizers will compile the materials in an outcomes document. Our goal is to not only distribute this information to relevant funders, but also to compile a population-specific resource guide.
