Paper Giant on Done By Law
Done By Law is a weekly radio show that gives listeners a unique and irreverent take on current legal news. This week, PG's Emma S. and Kate G. will be on the program to talk about how technology can increase access to justice. Human-centred design can help organisations use technology to make a real difference, instead of falling into the trap of just churning out more apps and websites.

'Student-led and student-centred: better supporting international students’ legal needs'
International students are vulnerable to a range of legal issues involving where they live, work and study, but most don’t know where to turn for support, and fear reporting issues because of perceived impacts to their visa arrangements. Paper Giant will discuss the tool they designed, and the process: involving international students at every step of the end-to-end research, design and evaluation process, ensuring their needs, goals and motivations are sensitively considered in solution development.

Robin DiAngelo: White Fragility
Why is is so hard for white people to talk about racism? And what does it mean to be white in a society that proclaims that race is meaningless? US-based writer, researcher and educator Robin DiAngelo has considered these questions deeply. She examines how this phenomenon derails progress in dealing with structural discrimination, and challenges us all to find constructive ways to see, acknowledge and respond to racism in the 21st Century.
