Privacy, Equity, and Civil Rights Discussion Roundtables

May 20, 2024
On May 16, 2024, and May 17, 2024, NTIA hosted two discussion sessions in support of the agency’s ongoing work exploring the intersection of privacy, equity, and civil rights. These discussion sessions followed on a Request for Comment issued by NTIA in January, 2023 on how companies’ data practices may impose outsized harm on marginalized or underserved communities, and the ways in which firms collect, share, and use data can exacerbate existing structural inequities. As NTIA prepares a report with findings and recommendations, the sessions provided an opportunity to hear from stakeholders about any potential new developments or concerns on the topic.
