The eQuality Project (at uOttawa) is looking for LGBTQI2+ teen in Ottawa for a research study

 

This is What Diversity Looks Like:

What Young People Need to Enjoy Privacy and Equality in Networked Spaces

We’re looking for

  • LGBTQI2 teens between the ages of 13 and 17
  • Who use computers, laptops, smart phones and/or tablets to go online to do school work, keep in touch with friends and family, watch movies/TV shows, listen to music, or learn about personal interests
  • Who can communicate in English

who would be interested in participating in a research project about online privacy and equality.

Participants will attend a 75-minute session in Ottawa on Nov 3rd, 2018 at either 12:00pm or 3:30pm.  Participants will complete a short demographic survey about themselves. They will then take part in a focus group discussion with other teens about their online experiences and help create a list of things that adults, teens, schools, the government, corporations and others can do to make all young people feel welcome and included online. Topics of discussion will include some sensitive issues such as “sexting, racism, experiences with threats of violence/doxing, etc.).

Participants will be paid $50 to compensate them for their time.
