Doteveryone’s most public voices tend to involve slightly intimidating women on slightly intimidating stages. But big talks and beautiful projects are only possible with a team of smart, cool, hardworking people behind the scenes — and we’ve just added three more faces to ours.

Alongside organisations like Amnesty International and Omidyar Network, we’re proud to announce that Doteveryone has joined the Partnership on AI to Benefit People and Society. The partnership — a not-for-profit organisation founded by Amazon, Apple, Google/DeepMind, Facebook, IBM and Microsoft — is designed to bring together a diverse range of voices to discuss the opportunities and rising challenges around AI.

We’ll be in Berlin next week to meet partners new and old, and to feed into conversations about making AI more fair, transparent and accountable — how it’s made, how it’s maintained and how it affects society as a whole.

For more information about the Partnership on AI (and their new executive director, Terah Lyons), visit partnershiponai.org. And, as always, if you have any questions for us please send us a note at hello@doteveryone.org.uk.

This is not an exaggeration. I…
