Online Safety Summit 2018 Delhi

Event coverage

Every year SheThePeople brings together a diverse group of leaders in safety and technology for our Safety Summit. This year we are in Delhi to lighthouse major safety challenges that the community is facing.

The #SafetySummit is a collective conversation on current issues that can help us understand our ever changing digital environment. It is an effort, that will build on challenges, solutions, shared issues to reflect on the future that’s ahead of us.

It is opportunity for professionals working in the field of online and digital safety to learn more about the current issues faced by women, and hear evolving approaches and solutions by our expert panel of speakers.

Women are vulnerable to online security breaches, fake news, gendered abuse and sexual harassment. Whether it’s a troll or an eve teaser, online or offline women remain easy targets. The challenges are many and identified but the solutions are yet few, and imperfect.

Online Safety Summit for Women powered by SheThePeople.TV & empowered by UN Women is an attempt to get all stakeholders together and explore a consolidated approach to safety.
