Doteveryone is the responsible technology think tank. 

We’re fighting for better tech, for everyone.

Press & Events Support 2018/19 Annual Review

We want to see a world where responsible technology is the new normal. 

We’re working to change how tech is made and used so that it supports a fair, inclusive and sustainable democratic society.   

So we don’t just talk, we act. 

We show businesses how to build technology that supports the best interests of people, communities and planet. 

And we help policymakers set the terms for technology to be better for everyone.

Our team 

Martha Lane Fox founded Doteveryone following her Dimbleby Lecture in 2015 where she called for a new organisation to help us shape our digital world and navigate the moral and ethical issues it presents.  

From that vision, we’ve grown into a small and dedicated London-based team that pulls together to achieve more than the sum of our parts. Meet the Doteveryone team.

Our values

Using our own Responsible Leadership process on ourselves, we’ve established the following values:

  • We value people’s time and experience, and are impatient for change
  • We turn complex ideas into accessible conversations
  • We challenge the obvious and state the unsaid
  • We respect the power of our voice and influence and try to use that to support and challenge others, as appropriate
  • In turn, we welcome both support and challenge for our own work
  • We are useful:
    • We describe problems that others can’t see yet – in a timely way
    • We understand how to make change, and create artefacts that help others to do so

How we are funded

As a charity, we rely on generous funders and a network of supporters and collaborators who make our work possible. Find out who funds us and how to support us.

We also rely on donations to fund our work. Help make responsible tech the new normal for a fair, inclusive and sustainable future by supporting Doteveryone.
