Global Future Council on the Future of Data Equity

Council mission and objectives

As the world increasingly turns to data to address urgent global challenges, emerging data ecosystems are perpetuating existing power dynamics – driving current inequalities further and giving rise to new groups of haves and have nots. With the downstream impacts of data at such high stakes, how can we ensure safer and more robust data ecosystems for all?
