dc.descriptionOn February 20th, 2020 twenty-six representatives from government agencies, public libraries, non-for-profits, resettlement organizations, and UW researchers convened for a half-day workshop at UW Othello Commons to discuss different strategies to improve technology access and education for refugee women in King County. The agenda for the workshop included a presentation and discussion of the main findings emerging from the research, co-design activities centered around four areas where some of the most pressing gaps in technology-related services exist, and a final session to outline a roadmap for future collaborations. This document presents a summary of the main points discussed during the workshop as well as the high level findings from the research.en_US
dc.description.abstractThe main objective of the research is to understand the role of technology access and education for women who have arrived in Washington State as refugees. As part of this research, we conducted interviews with twenty-one refugee service providers in King County in 2019. The purpose of these interviews was to map a landscape of technology-related services and programs available for refugee women and their communities, to identify the main challenges these organizations face, and the main needs for designing better programs and services for refugee communities.en_US
