How can we shape technology for a just future?

Data & Society’s research transforms people’s understanding of how technology shapes society, and is shaped by it in turn. We study the societal implications of data-centric technologies and automation, and translate that research into actionable, just policy recommendations.

Your support ensures our integrity and independence, allowing us to develop an evidence base about the intersection of technology and society that challenges assumptions, elevates community expertise, and drives informed decision-making. With your gift, we can continue to center our values of independence and creativity as we work to shift power and advance new frames for governing data-centric technologies and automation.
