Rethinking Pink & Blue: De-gendering Tech for Tots

Jay is part of a proposed SXSW panel. Please pop over and give it a thumbs up.

From Amazon’s recent removal of their boy and girl categories for toys, to Facebook’s redesign of their “Friend” logo to make the female and male silhouettes equal, the tech industry is in the early stages of re-examining its representations of gender. Design is often at the heart of defining these gender roles, which can begin at a young age with toys. This panel will discuss the recent movement to de-gender design in the tech world, how start-ups are leading the revolution, and why it’s good for business.
