Active Global Working Groups
Our groups are comprised of diverse global scholars, policymakers, and stakeholders – from seven countries. Northwestern faculty participants and graduate student participants are shared below.
Banking and Finance
What innovations can address the public’s loss of trust in the existing financial instruments and institutions? As societies become more digitized, policymakers must promote the more efficient digital banks and currencies while also ensuring consumer security. In successfully addressing the challenge, this group could contribute to a restored balance between safety and efficiency of the financial system in the new digital environment.

Gender Justice and Digital Life
The Gender Justice group challenges the normalization of gender-based violence and inequalities, apathy and inertia around gender justice, but especially in the digital realm. In an environment where technology and data are privately owned, neither individuals nor companies are held legally accountable for gender discrimination. The group strives to contribute to an increased awareness about gender abuse online, and create a future community centered around gender-equitable technology and practices.
