Summit Speaker

Technology Analyst, Barclays

Cooper Kidd (they/them) is a neurodivergent, non-binary, queer person of Korean descent who is currently living on the Stolen Lands of the Lenni Lenape. They enjoy challenging the status quo, continuing to grow, and climbing outside on large rocks. Professionally, Cooper's work centers on LGBTQ+, BIPOC, and other marginalized groups. They are passionate about using data to help people and others in their communities envision a world beyond the confines of the capitalistic, heteropatriarchal one we currently exist in. They have in the past taught a class on LGBTQ+ communication to upper-level undergraduates at the University of Maryland, College Park, led research studies on the use of technology and HIV prevention at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, and created trainings on the importance of pronouns at Swarthmore College. Currently, they work at Barclays in their technology sector and do organizing work on the side. You can learn more about them at: cooperleekidd.com.
