Everyone acknowledges that the software field has an issue with gender
balance, but there are many of arguments about what to do about it.
Recent events have caused the community to scrutinize how they treat
the issues of race and gender. The social justice community uses the
term 'anti-oppression' to describe techniques for being more inclusive
to people of a wide variety of backgrounds, ethnicities, sexualities,
and genders. Software developers generally lack exposure to these
terms and techniques.

In this talk, Lindsey and Steve will introduce basic anti-oppression
concepts, and provide specific examples of situations where we as
software developers can use these tools to engender a more inclusive
community.
