Stronger Society

Strengthening society - people, communities and organisations - to be able to direct the impacts of technology

It’s been vital to Doteveryone’s work to be rooted in how people experience the impacts of technology and to listen to what they want from it.

Our first of its kind research revealed a gulf between the perceived positive personal benefits and the negative societal impacts of technology and the ‘techlash’ that has followed.

In 2020 we found that despite changes in both technology and policy, the gap between the benefits to individuals and society persists. And although people better understand the ways data is collected and used, tech
companies are still not giving them opportunities to control services in line with their own preferences. There’s a widespread feeling of distrust towards tech companies and an appetite for greater regulation – 58% of the public believe the tech sector is regulated too little.

This work was all about ensuring the public – everyone – can help direct the impacts of technology.
