      EVENT DETAILS
      OUT IN TECH BOOK CLUB: WHITE FEMINISM by KOA BECK

      Join OUT IN TECH for their first book club event of 2021 as they chat with White Feminism author (and Out in Tech speaker fave!) Koa Beck. Register here

      White Feminism is a fascinating new dive into "how elitism and racial prejudice has driven the narrative of feminist discourse. Koa Beck blends pop culture, primary historical research, and first-hand storytelling to show us how we have shut women out of the movement, and what we can do to course correct for a new generation—perfect for women of color looking for a more inclusive way to fight for women’s rights."

      A note that you will not be expected to have read the book to attend the virtual event.

      Koa will be in conversation with #book-club moderator Jackie Bellando.
