We’re All Gonna Make It: Accounting for the Intersection of Sex and Race in the Governance of Emerging Technologies

By Sabina Patawaran, University of Sydney, CSW, 2022


Sabina studies at the University of Sydney. Her policy paper focuses on We’re All Gonna Make It: Accounting for the Intersection of Sex and Race in the Governance of Emerging Technologies


Executive Summary


Technology governance has become a pressing issue for policymakers worldwide as emerging technologies have led to various societal harms like the amplification of violence. Moreover, these harms disproportionately impact women of colour (United Nations Human Rights Council [UNHRC] 2020). In response, this paper recommends a regulatory sandbox that is inclusive of women of colour within its processes, and intersectional data collection and analysis on a national level. Such measures can help influence technological advancement towards a more equitable direction, and address the systemic barriers of racism and sexism within policymaking (Beauregard, Holman & Sheppard 2022; Maturi & Munro 2023).
