People, Power and Technology | Research launch event with BritainThinks and Doteveryone

BritainThinks and Doteveryone are excited to announce the launch of People, Power and Technology: The 2020 Digital Attitudes Report.

BritainThinks is one of the UK’s leading insight and strategy consultancies, delivering research for clients across government, business and the third sector.

Doteveryone is the responsible technology think tank that’s fighting for better tech for everyone. In 2018 we partnered to conduct a nationally representative survey and focus groups to benchmark the public’s appetite, understanding and tolerance towards the impacts of tech on their lives.

Our latest report revisits these topics to see whether perspectives have changed, and what the public’s relationship with technology looks like now.

Join us at a virtual event on Tuesday 12th May from 14:00-14:45 to hear the findings from this in-depth research into the public’s attitudes and experiences online and to discuss our recommendations to policy and industry to ensure that, even as we live through unprecedented times, we are shaping a fairer future where technology works for more people, more of the time.

We’re delighted to be joined by Tabitha Goldstaub, Chair of AI Council and co-founder of CogX and Roger Taylor, Chair, Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation – as well as other guest speakers to be announced – who will discuss:

  • Why there continues to be a gap between the benefits people feel from technology in their lives as individuals and the impact it has on society.
  • How the public’s digital understanding has changed since 2018 and the implications.
  • Public’s concerns about online harms and their experience of trying to hold tech companies to account when things go wrong.
  • A discussion on the practicalities and implications of running public attitudes research during a global pandemic.

As part of the virtual event there will be a Q&A, where attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions about the report and the speakers’ presentations. The full agenda will be circulated closer to the event.

Spaces are limited so please RSVP as soon as possible via Eventbrite and we will send details on how to join the event nearer the time.

Unlike previously advertised, we will be hosting this event using Zoom. Upon reviewing our available options, we have chosen to use Zoom for its ability to support a large audience and more than one panelist. Attendees will not need to download the Zoom app in order to join.

Please note that this session will be recorded and may be shared with members of the audience following the session. Please be aware that if you ask any questions during the Q&A using your audio or via the chat function this will be included on the recording. If you are unable to attend and would like to receive a copy of the recording after the event please contact

We look forward to seeing you there.

Kind regards,

BritainThinks and Doteveryone
