Author / Presenters: Meredith Whittaker

Meredith Whittaker is not afraid to take on tech giants. In 2018, she led the famous mass staff walkout at Google over the company’s laissez faire attitude towards sexual harassment allegations and the moral and ethical implications of its business practices.

Now, as President of Signal, the not-for-profit encrypted and secure messaging app, Whittaker is one of the world’s most respected experts on data surveillance and the future of big tech. She has advised the White House, the US Federal Trade Commission and many government and civil organisations on privacy, internet security and policy.

At this special event, Whittaker joins host Vanessa Toholka at The Wheeler Centre to discuss data privacy, artificial intelligence, and technology’s impact on democracy in this contentious and pivotal US election year. Don’t miss the opportunity to hear from a leading global expert on a subject that has far-reaching implications for all of our futures.
