Human Rights Opportunities and Challenges for Technology Companies

Jamie O’Connell
Lecturer, Stanford Law School

Faris Natour
Co-Founder & Principal, Article One

Adele Faure
Assistant General Counsel, Robinhood

With IPOs, innovation, and expansion in global markets come human rights opportunities and challenges for Bay Area companies. New technologies can spur political discourse and engagement, lift communities out of poverty, and advance other human rights. At the same time, regulators, investors, and consumers are scrutinizing crypto-currencies, the presence of conflict minerals in global supply chains, dealings with authoritarian regimes, and the moderation of hate speech. Legal experts discuss the privacy, freedom of expression, fair labor, and other fundamental rights at play in the tech sector.

• Which singular human rights opportunities and challenges do Bay Area companies face?
• What scrutiny can we expect from U.S. and foreign regulators?
• Should some markets, technologies, or practices be off limits?
• What leadership and growth opportunities do human rights present?
• What metrics and best practices should be considered?
