By examining the way digital tools and platforms are designed, built, and maintained, this BWB Text aims to identify where and what we can do better for everyone in Aotearoa.

Contributors include Dr Nessa Lynch, Amber Craig, Hiria Te Rangi, Dr Sarah Bickerton, Sarah Pritchett, Hannah Blumhardt, Dr Paul Smith, Professor Graeme Austin, Siobhan McCarthy, Dr Karaitiana Taiuru, Dr Andrew Chen, Dr Karly Burch, Dr Moana Nepia, Nicholas Jones, Dr Marama Muru-Lanning, Dr Henry Williams, Mira O' Connor and Professor Anna Brown.
