Interview with Define AI

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tmHFeZ6AJI4&ab_channel=DefinedAI

I recently had a chance to talk with Catarina from Define AI and share my experiences in tech and how I try to show up as my authentic self in this arena.

From the description of this event:
"We’re celebrating International Women’s Day throughout the month of March by honoring Queens of Tech: women who are leading the push for equality and inclusivity in the tech industry, simply by being themselves. 
Today, we introduce you to our first guest in this interview series: Meenoo Rami, Principal Product Manager for Xbox at Microsoft and a successful author, teacher, and community influencer. Find out how Meenoo made the jump from teaching to tech, and how she sees the tech industry evolving in the future."

You can view the interview above and let me know if something resonates with you from my experience. Thank you!

Safer Internet Day 2022

For Safer Internet Day 2022, I had the opportunity to lead a cross-company effort and work with my old team Minecraft: Education Edition to bring together a new world and resources to help young players and their families with tips to stay safer on the open web.

Check out the trailer here. Find the lesson here. And please share widely with parents and educators in your network.

It took countless people across Microsoft to bring together this resource and announcement. I am grateful for all of their support. You can read the full blogpost on the Xbox site here.

Debug Summit

On December 8th, 2021 I had the honor of being part of Debug Summit, and share my current thinking on my team's work related to keeping children safe on the internet. See the advertised description of my talk below:

Debug Summit Agenda - Meenoo Rami

Throughout my talk, I tried to share my thinking on how this work can be done while keeping young people centered in the experiences that we are trying to improve, one concrete example of this is, to perhaps involve young games/players/users involved in the games reviews we produce to guide parent's decisions on the platform.

There were numerous questions about how use user research in our work and how the pandemic has affected the way we've involved parents and children's voice in our work. Overall, it was a great summit and I am grateful for the opportunity to share my current thinking.

Queer spaces matter in tech and I am committed to being an ally to all those who I met virtually and champion their voices in the work we do everyday.

I look forward to attending the next Summit from Lesbians Who Tech.
