Doteveryone champions responsible technology for a fairer future. 

Responsible Technology promotes a fair, inclusive and thriving democratic society.
It works in the best interests of the individual and of the public as a whole, safeguards against harm and is founded on fair and transparent value exchange between people and technology.

We are an independent think tank that explores how technology is changing society, shows what responsible technology can look like, and catalyses communities to shape technology to serve people better. 

We want industry to build technology that considers its impact on society, we want the public to have a greater voice in shaping technologies and we want policymakers to make informed and responsible decisions about the ways we use technology.

We work at speed, testing our ideas as we go. Read more about our latest projects and keep up with our work on Medium and Twitter

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.

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, working to make responsible technology the new normal. Meet the Doteveryone team
