CSW works very hard to create opportunities for people to connect, and that’s exactly what we saw at Thinking Gender this year. If you were at the morning panel “Mods and Vlogs: Gender Techs,” you know there was even an unexpected virtual connection that took place! Panelist Gopinaath Kannabiran almost missed out on his own panel when he got stuck at the airport during a winter storm. The “Mods and Vlogs” moderator, CSW Research Scholar Rosemary Candelario, wouldn’t hear of it! When I delivered her what I thought was some bad news, she didn’t miss a beat: why not just Skype the presenter in? I asked, “Can you do that?” No problem! And suddenly, there was Gopi on the screen. How fitting for a panel on Gender and Technology… Once again, CSW’s crew came through. Everyone just rolls with the punches, and they do it with a smile.
