3. Thought Leadership
To advance solutions at the intersection of Law, Technology and Human Trafficking, ALIGHT Executive Director Marianna Kosharovsky and Advisor Simon Cohen presented at the 2017 Princeton University Center for Information Technology and Policy’s “Gender-based Violence and Safety in IT Design: Design Ethics Workshop.” Joining technologists, policy experts, researchers, attorneys and activists, participants gathered to discuss and develop new approaches for creating accessible and targeted solutions. One key takeaway was the concern for the unintended consequences of technology — particularly for vulnerable populations such as survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking. Take a look at the lessons on “Design Ethics for Gender-Based Violence and Safety Technologies” from the event.
In 2018, Denver Startup Week invited ALIGHT to present the Headline Event “Tech for Good” to engage and support the tech startup community on social justice initiatives. Read about our recommendations “Startup Basics … and Extra Ethical Considerations for Being Change Agents on Social Justice Issues in our Communities” from the event.
ALIGHT continues this work through developing on-the-ground insights and innovations from operating the ALIGHT Legal Needs Matching Program. ALIGHT appreciates the involvement of ALIGHT Partners across different disciplines as we encounter the opportunities and complexities of this work.
