As director of the Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL) Silicon Valley-based Center for Technology and Society, Brittan Heller oversees efforts to track cyber-hate, and works in partnership with technology companies and law enforcement agencies to reduce bigotry and promote justice and fair treatment in online environments.

At a time when tech companies are struggling to respond to the rise of online hate speech and cyber harassment, the ADL is attempting to take a proactive approach.

At SSIR’s 2018 Data on Purpose conference, Kim Meredith, executive director of the Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society, spoke with Heller about the ADL’s data-driven tactics as well as Heller’s background in international criminal and human rights law, and her role in one of the first high-profile, cyber-harassment cases in the United States.
