Closing Keynote: The Intersection of Race, Gender, Feminism and the Internet. Plus, the 10X10 Project

Surveying the conversational landscape online over the past year, it’s clear that the intersection of race and gender is a place we all have come to, sometimes in solidarity, sometimes in confusion, and sometimes with hurt feelings, outrage, even outright anger. The social media space has led to an unprecedented crumbling of the barriers presented by geography and class in the physical world. We have unprecedented access to the experiences and opinions of others. But are we taking advantage of that access? And how can we all better leverage the tremendous power of social media to serve our community, our beliefs, and our friends and neighbors? Not to mention; What do you do about the trolls?
