FSI | Cyber – Inclusive Content Moderation Is Innovative Content Moderation

January 25, 2022 12:00 pm 1:00 pm

Join us on Tuesday, January 25 from 12 PM – 1 PM PT for “Inclusive Content Moderation Is Innovative Content Moderation” featuring Aerica Shimizu Banks, founder of Shiso in conversation with Julie Owono, executive director of the Content Policy and Society Lab. This weekly seminar series is jointly organized by the Cyber Policy Center’s Program on Democracy and the Internet and the Hewlett Foundation’s Cyber Initiative.

Content moderation policies are perhaps the most scrutinized aspects of online platform operations, and are implicated in the most urgent current and political events globally. And yet, companies struggle to meet the moment, in part because of historical ignorance of a foundational component to adaptive policies: inclusion and accessibility. In creating the Beyond The Statement: Tech Framework for Color Of Change, Aerica Shimizu Banks illuminated a pathway to consistent and nimble innovation through  the “Curb-Cut Effect” of inclusive practices and policies. This presentation will explore how she found, through developing this framework, that the more inclusive a policy, the more innovative possibilities become for content moderation.
