On Thursday, October 12 at 8:30AM JST, Landecker Fellow Ayden Férdeline is organizing a hybrid session at the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) 2023. Landecker Fellow Yasmin Al-Douri will moderate questions from remote participants.
The round table will focus on strengthening worker autonomy in the modern workplace, questioning how policymakers can meaningfully involve workers in their decision-making processes, how laws should be updated, and how to tackle data protection.
“The session will highlight the importance of viewing data from a collective lens, discussing the different approaches needed to address workplace privacy and management issues as labor issues, as opposed to data protection matters,” the official program page explains.
In a true hybrid mode, the session will be structured to maximize engagement from both onsite and online participants. Inperson and remote speakers will be equally called upon, with equal speaking time ensured.
