We are delighted to announce that the 2021 Information Architecture Conference opening keynote will be delivered by the daughter-mom team of Rebekah and Jamie Bruesehoff.
Jamie is an openly queer woman married to a Lutheran pastor and mom to three spirited children, who writes and speaks about LGBTQ identities, anti-bullying, parenting, and faith.
Together they will tell their story and make the case for IA activism. Rebekah, a self-described “word kid,” says the word “transgender” gave her identity, community, and power. And Jamie explains how “language and classification schemes can be radically affirming or excluding, so this community has the power to build a world where we all fit.”
In light of our theme of Emergence and our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, we believe this dynamic duo is the perfect fit for IAC21, and Abby Covert agrees: “After meeting with Rebekah and Jamie, I am even more excited for the valuable perspective they will bring to the IA community. Get ready to confront some hard truths about what it means to build classification systems and what happens when those systems aren’t built with real people in mind.”
