- Gender and Technology Institute, Uruguay + (Through the event, the participants attend … Through the event, the participants attended different sessions distributed in the following big topics: digital security, security in mobiles, privacy, data politics, gender and technology, replication and training. They were developed across the following sessions: - Digital security: basic concepts about security, how to take control of the browser, malware’s attacks, server’s attacks, web hosting, anonymity, encryption, TOR, TAILS and deep web. - Mobile security: Understand infrastructure and mobiles, security and privacy settings for mobiles, telephony alternatives with VOIP. - Data politics: Metadata, create and protect databases, free mapping processes, technology sovereignty, collective memory. - Campaigns: Creative uses of social media, planning of campaign considering privacy and security, search engine optimization, push profiles of land right defenders under risk, hate speech and feminist counter-speech. - Holistic security: Technology in demonstrations, documenting violence, preparing an event or training in an unknown context, emotions and addictions using social media. And at the end of the day there were two labs that people could attend: the feminist hackerspace and the self-care lab. We noticed that many of the participants went to the hackerspace, even when that activity was not required for the institute. It shows us that digital security, privacy and self-learning are activities that they understand are relevant for their own work. Some of them didn’t have any previous experience with free software and privacy tools, but they were looking to learn about this options and use them as soon as they could. In the self-care lab, one facilitator was providing methodologies to deal with stress and anxiety as well as to learn to relax and ground in front of fear and trauma. She provided a space to share methods of collective and individual care. About the schedule, the first day we worked with all the participants to clarify the goals of the GTI, the shared agreements, media protocols and documentation, as well as all important logistic information. There was also a symbolic action to begin the institute and connect between all of us. In the afternoon the participants shared in small groups about knowledge that comes from their ancestors and their first memories of technology as well as how their relationship with technology has been influenced by their gender as well as other intersectional dimensions like geographic origin, social class, access to education, opportunities to education and so on. Based on those conversations we moved on into a first collective session about what integral security means, detailing many areas that can be protected as well as strategies of mitigation that exist. The participants shared some of their security strategies linking the relationship between physical integrity, digital security and psychosocial well-being. The last session allowed us all to visibilize the diversity of knowledge and security practices that the participants and their networks already have. It also let us see that the participants were already applying security practices that we also use in digital environments, strategies known like “fortification”, “reduction”, “obfuscation” and "compartmentalization". That first day allowed the participants to understand that technologies are diverse and broad and that ancestral technologies are valuable technical knowledge that we need to reclaim, showing how all of them have an expert relationship with many technical knowledges. It also allowed us to all of us to start from a shared vocabulary as well as to have a better understanding of the diversity of contexts, challenges and strategies. About the schedule during the GTI, it usually was 3 different sessions in parallel that allowed the participants to find the session that better accommodate their interests. All the sessions were facilitated by 2 or 3 facilitators and one additional person was taking notes. Finally, all the facilitators were meeting at the end of the day to evaluate how everything went, what was the evaluation of their sessions by the participants and which changes they needed to implement the next day. The last day was designed for the participants to have strategical conversations about topics they needed to go deep in. And at the end we had a closing session where we discussed next steps after the GTI, which activities, trainings, or facilitations they were planning, how they wanted to keep in touch and how to manage the documentation of the sessions. The next steps will be to create a mailing list for participants, share reviewed documentation, update the curricula as well as to create this document. We will also do a follow up of each participant to understand which are the trainings and awareness raising activities they are planning in their own networks and communities, and see what is the best way that we can support their efforts.est way that we can support their efforts.)
