As the global community continues to grapple with the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Atlantic Council is open for business. Our business, meetings, and events, however, are occurring virtually. For more information, please read an update from our President and CEO.
Please join the Atlantic Council on March 4, 2021 from 1:00 – 1:45 pm EST/10:00-10:45 am PST, for a conversation featuring YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki and Atlantic Council President & CEO Frederick Kempe, on how the company views its mission and responsibilities in the information ecosystem and the global landscape of digital regulatory efforts.
Increasing connectivity has given rise to societal and geopolitical debates over the role of private industry and governments in governing the internet, the viability of human rights in digital spaces, and the impact of technology on societies. With approximately 2 billion users each month, YouTube is a major stakeholder in these conversations. The event will provide a wide-ranging dialogue on the evolution of online speech, YouTube’s response to online harms, and the global conversation about expression, regulation, and norm-setting.
The Digital Forensic Research Lab is pleased to present this live, online conversation as part of the #ACFrontPage event series, our premier ideas platform spotlighting global leaders.
