Governance in Online Speech Leadership Series

June 26, 2023

Interdisciplinary professionals committed to careers in online governance, content moderation, integrity, and trust and safety, will join together for three days of educational workshops and networking, hosted by Visiting Scholar Kate Klonick.

The Governance in Online Speech Leadership Series is a closed-door, invitation-only event from June 26-28, 2023 at Yale Law School’s Information Society Project, one of the foremost centers for the study of technology, speech, law, and information policy in the world.

It is co-sponsored by the Berkman Klein Center’s Institute for Rebooting Social Media at Harvard University, Stanford Cyber Policy Center, Trust and Safety Foundation, Trust and Safety Professional Association, and the Integrity Institute

Attendees were selected by the conference advisory board from a highly competitive group of applicants. The selected cohort is comprised of thirty-five current industry professionals committed to careers in integrity, online speech governance, and trust & safety. 

In addition to being an educational opportunity to learn the historic background of the field, the conference is a professional networking opportunity that has implications for public and private law and policy. Its goal is not just education but to encourage interdisciplinary conversations between sectors of technology and society who can translate the language of technology and industry into the language of law, policy, education, and advocacy.
