This week, we’ll be in Toronto, Canada for the seventh annual RightsCon Summit — one of the world’s leading conferences on human rights in the digital age.
We’ll join business leaders, policymakers, technologists and human rights defenders to tackle some of the most pressing issues at the intersection of human rights and digital technology.
If you’re going to be there, please join us at one of the sessions listed below, and come say hi to one of our team members: Dhanaraj Thakur (@thakurdhanaraj), Renata Avila (@avilarenata) and Teddy Woodhouse (@TeddyWoodhouse).
