Designing Tools for Creating Safer Digital Spaces within Popular Platforms with Block Party’s Zoelle Egner

Join us for the next session of Digital Playground, a monthly series in partnership between New_ Public and All Tech is Human.

Get a sneak peek at the company’s forthcoming new product!  Head of Marketing and Growth for Block Party Zoelle Egner guides us through opportunities for consumer tools for online safety & anti-harassment. You will have an opportunity to give feedback and a chance to hear about how the company is adapting to a changing environment with the future of social media in the balance amongst court cases, new legislation, changing ownership, and more.

The session will begin with a 30-minute look at creating healthier digital environments inside potentially harmful existing social platforms, especially for those who are required to be “extremely online” – whether as journalists, advocates, politicians, or other public figures.

The session will close with a 30 minute deep-dive for participants to explore healthy digital public spaces through the lens of tools that address online harassment and privacy concerns. You’ll also hear from All Tech Is Human about our brand new report on Tech & Democracy, and the role of social platforms and how they affect thriving multiracial democracies.
