Salesforce workers recently wrote this to their CEO: "We cannot cede responsibility for the use of the technology we create."
This meetup group is for anyone in the Dublin area who believes technology should be used for the broader good, particularly those of us who work in the technology industry and who need to grapple with these issues in practice. Working conditions and issues we face in our careers is also in scope. Permanent and contract workers in the technology sector are equally welcome.
The idea for this group is to get a set of like-minded people together, and see what it may evolve into - is it time for something akin to the Tech Workers Coalition to arrive in Dublin? In the near-term, there will be monthly events, alternating between meetups and talks.
