Kendra Albert


Ally Skills Workshops



Hey there! I’m Kendra, a technology lawyer and a scholar of computing, gender, and society.

By day, I'm a clinical instructor at the Cyberlaw Clinic at Harvard Law School, where I teach students to practice technology law. I am a radical generalist and will work on pretty much anything technology-related. Some recent (public) highlights include:

My scholarship, writing, and speaking focus on questions of digital technology and power, especially in relationship to gender and sexuality. Some representative examples:

I also hold an appointment as a lecturer on Studies of Women, Gender, and Sexuality at Harvard University, where I teach a class on transgender rights and the law. In 2019, I founded the Initiative for a Representative First Amendment (IfRFA), which provides funding and support for law students from backgrounds tradtionally underrepresented in First Amendment law. I currently serve as IfRFA's director, working alongside the incredible Jasjot Kaur.

When I'm not working or teaching or writing, I try to make the world suck less. I have a side business facilitating workshops on anti-oppressive practices, and I reinvest money from that work into community mutual aid. Other than that, I spend my free time reading, playing video games, cooking, and finding new ways to organize my life.

I tweet at @KendraSerra. I occasionally blog about things I've been thinking about. Reach me by email at kendra dot serra at gmail dot com. My pronouns are they/them/theirs. For more info on my background and accomplishments, feel free to peruse my CV.
