Tech Accountability Project
Helping make the tech sector accountable by supporting journalists and whistleblowers
Smart phones. Cars. Voting. Medical records. Your next purchase. The news. Refrigerators. Music. Watches. Smart speakers. Technology has become both essential and integral to every aspect of our lives. The growing dependence of our democracies on technology, and specifically on AI and private tech companies, for innumerable aspects of our day-to-day lives requires an unprecedented level of scrutiny of these industries.
What will it take to make the tech sector accountable?
The role of journalists and whistleblowers in holding the tech sector accountable is more essential than ever.
The Signals Network’s Tech Accountability Project aims to contribute to efforts to hold the tech sector accountable in a unique partnership with Amnesty International. This effort will include developing resources and providing support for tech workers considering speaking out about misconduct or unethical behavior at their companies. In partnership with journalists and civil society organizations, we seek to hold powerful interests to account in the tech industry and empower tech workers across the sector… and the globe.
The Tech Accountability Project includes:
- Developing and circulating resources specific to tech workers in partnership with Amnesty International
- Providing support to tech whistleblowers, including legal support
- Supporting media investigations into the tech industry
Featuring a Legal section, created by The Signals Network based on the experience of former whistleblowers.
