#Human Rights


This year marks the 10th anniversary of the first “transparency report” released by Google, which detailed how the company responded to government requests for user data. Since then, the practice has spread throughout the tech industry, with over 70 companies worldwide in the ICT and internet and mobile ecosystem releasing reports.

With the 10th edition of RightsCon (RightsCon.org) set to launch online from June 7-11, 2021, Access Now is looking back on milestones from the past decade of the digital age. Join Access Now and BSR for a virtual conversation on transparency reporting as a tool for human rights. Our wide range of speakers will reflect on the past 10 years, examine the gaps that need to be filled, and look ahead to how transparency reporting must improve to meet the challenges of an increasingly digital world.
