To Care, and How We Get There

Care shows up in many ways and forms in HCI research and practice, and increasingly so. Touching upon some of these wide-ranging manifestations of care work in HCI worlds, this talk will go on to consider what futures of care work might look like. We will proceed then to discuss learnings for futures of work more broadly, and how we might infuse these with care.


Neha Kumar is an Associate Professor at Georgia Tech, working at the intersection of human-centered computing and global development. She was trained as a computer scientist, designer, and ethnographer at UC Berkeley and Stanford University, and brings this training to the work she does and leads today. Her research engages feminist perspectives and assets-based approaches towards the design of technology in variously underserved contexts. She currently serves as president of ACM SIGCHI.
