hckn014: SheHacks Kenya

Willkommen zu einer weiteren Folge Haecksenwerk!

Haecksenwerk ist das Podcastkollektiv der Haecksen. Es geht um die ganze Bandbreite von Technik, Kultur und Feminismus. In unserem Podcast möchten wir Einblicke in Themen geben, die uns bewegen. Diese Folge ist ein Interview, das auf Englisch geführt wurde.

The first episode of our series about feminist hacker groups around the world leads us to Kenya. Piko talks with Laura Tich about Shehacks Kenya, an initiative to teach female students in Kenya about cyber security and to inspire them to make computer science and information security their job. Turns out that the problems that feminism addresses are very similar to those in Germany…

The episode was recorded in August 2022. Why it took us so long to publish the episode will be explained around minute 39. We noticed only afterwards that the audio deteriorated during the episode. We will work on improving that in the coming episodes!
