DEI Bytes: Moving Toward Inclusive IT Terminology
September 28 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 amFree
This will be a discussion on changing common IT terminology that is exclusionary language. A common example would be master/slave, master/main, blacklist/whitelist vs. blocked/allowed as it is racially insensitive. Another example, SCRUM master, which invokes a potential feeling of superiority over others.
