Minha Lee

is an assistant professor at the department of Industrial Design at Eindhoven University of Technology who dwells on the intersection of philosophy and HCI. She researches on morally relevant interactions with technological agents like robots or chatbots. While she struggles with calling herself an activist from a first-person standpoint, she recognizes that specific activities she takes on, e.g., addressing racism at a technical university in the Netherlands, reflect activism. \

Cristina Zaga

is an assistant professor, speaker, and maker of poetic robots. At the Human-Centred Design Group (Design and Production Management department) and The DesignLab of the University of Twente, Cristina's research bridges engineering, design, and social science to develop technology responsibly. She is particularly interested in developing co-design and speculative design methods to imagine, ideate, and design robots responsibly. Cristina believes in the power of poetic computation to bring about future-oriented reflection on the technology we want to develop. Cristina is an intersectional feminist and advocates for technology that is diverse, inclusive and equitable.\

Angelika Strohmayer

is co-director of the Design Feminisms research group and a senior lecturer at Northumbria University's School of Design. Her anti-disciplinary research sits at the intersection of justice-oriented and feminist theorising and in-the-world research with communities, third sector organisations, and activists using collaborative and creative research methods. \

Max Krüger

is a researcher and PhD student at the University of Siegen. His research focuses on issues of (forced) migration and arriving. He is interested in the role of care and participation in design processes, the interplay between them and in 'unsettling' both of them.\

Débora de Castro Leal

is doing her Ph.D. in Alternative Economics and Human Computer Interaction at the University of Siegen (Germany). In her research, she is interested in how communities experience and deal with economic and technological pressures in areas of post-conflict and social instability, especially communities in the Brazilian and Colombian Amazon rainforest.\
