In this issue of the CJC Policy Portal, we aim to compile a set of
necessary intersectional critiques and commentaries on the state of digital
policy in Canada and beyond. Specific areas of enquiry can include:

   - equity, diversity and inclusion integration into various aspects of
   digital policy at local, national and global levels
   - feminist perspectives on specific digital policy issues in Canada
   and/or globally
   - how intersectional feminist approaches (e.g., those including class,
   caste, sexuality, race, and other facets of social identity) shape our
   experiences and needs regarding digital technologies
   - scholarly and civil society initiatives to develop intersectional
   feminist principles and recommendations on digital policy, including forms
   of activism about policy
   - intersectional data justice initiatives and recommendations
   - global geographies of gendered activism that shape digital policy
   - the labor of those working on digital policy making from an inclusive
   - feminist critiques of the tech industry’s reach into digital policy
