Max

Frances[edit]

I've been a Visual/UI/UX Designer for the past 2-3 years since graduating Carnegie Mellon University. After quitting my last full-time job, I realized how significant unconscious bias is even in fairly well-educated and privileged groups. I would like to see WIGI not only reflect unbiased data, but also eventually used to fight the biases that limit us all.

Hargup[edit]

I'm doing it for feminism. I've been reading and thinking about feministic issues from quite some time. I also blogged about it [1]. I feel they are very important and I should do something about. Being a mathematics student and a competent programmer, I felt this can be a very good opportunity to use my skill set to help with feminism.
