Behind the Screens: Domestic Violence and Technology Symposium

The Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship’s first fall anchor event is Behind the Screens: Domestic Violence and Technology Symposium held on October 17, 2018.

In partnership with the CSULB Center for First Amendment Studies, the Women’s & Gender Equity Center, local law enforcement, as well as community DV experts and survivors, this half day symposium considers the interpersonal and legal consequences of how technologies including but not limited to smartphones, keylogging, GPS tracking, and Internet of Things manipulation may lead to intimate partner abuse like cyberstalking, sextortion, and revenge porn.

In the spirit of balance, conversations will also discuss the various ways technology has benefited domestic violence survivors.

The event will include expert panels, survivor testimonials, and a design sprint for attendees to brainstorm solutions to the growing DV and technology problem. Campus and Long Beach community members are welcome to attend this free event.
