What to do as a Project Bijou participant
Three simple steps:
with people about this project. Use trusted human-to-human connection on an emotional level, perhaps through telling them a story of how people can be harmed by their data being misused.
how personal data is treated in your own workplaces.
Shift questions from “Can we do this [with people’s data]?” to “Should we do this [with people’s data]?”.
the change in behaviour (personal and organisational) towards solutions/outcomes where all people are treated with dignity and respect.
Why should you get involved?
Joining the project lets you play a part in creating real, positive change in how people’s data is treated. Data harms are real, and they can affect people, organisations, and society in profoundly damaging and long-lasting ways: we all need to face this reality and take action to protect each other.
