Talk: Decoding Race

Google’s Decoding Race Series - is the first step of a longer-term strategy - intended to inform and empower Googlers to have open and constructive conversations on race, and its intersections. In December 2016, Alphabet’s Chief Legal Officer, David Drummond, talked with Van Jones for a fireside chat. They discussed a variety of topics, including the election of Donald Trump, Americanism, the love army, #yeswecode, and much more. Following this fireside chat, be sure to check out the Decoding Race panel on “Programming and Prejudice: Can Computers Be Racist?” moderated by Van Jones available at https://youtu.be/Rq3ao5xmpy0
