GTRI partnered with Dept of Family and Children Services to develop and implement a system for case workers to discretely contact supervisors and public safety when in a home visit that is escalating and may turn potentially violent and put the caseworker in danger.
In many Chinese families, adolescent children are moving abroad to pursue higher education. Due to cultural issues and China's One-Child Policy, parents have high expectations for their children and are willing to invest time and money to help them build a successful future. In this study, we interviewed both Chinese students in the US and Chinese parents in China whose children are studying abroad about their family communications. Parents and students used a variety of media, and families negotiated how each medium was used.
Dear Games is an educational program collaboration between Charis Circle, members of the GA Tech Game Studio and Different Games Collective. We offer inclusive events to support diverse participation in videogame developement and culture at the South's oldest independent feminist bookstore, Charis Books and More, with consideration to the ways that longstanding feminist community organizations can inform contemporary efforts to increase diversity in STEM.
