Working in Civil Society

Posted on in Presentations

Bringing a technological perspective into civil society can transform how organizations do their work. This session will examine how this transformation can happen from a variety of perspectives: exposing government surveillance, protecting journalists world-wide, preserving a free and open Internet, bringing a security focus to artificial intelligence research, protecting NGO networks and more.

Learning Objectives:
1: Learn more about civil society: an ecosystem of efforts to support and uphold the public interest.
2: Hear stories of public interest technology work from people who have spent time in civil society.
3: Find out about how you can support civil society from within employment in a different sector.
