Beth Goldberg is a graduating joint-degree student from the Yale Jackson Institute for Global Affairs and the Yale School of Management. Beth has focused her studies on the ethical governance of technology, exploring questions of how we expand Internet access to empower vulnerable communities, or how we prevent Internet platforms from amplifying problems like terrorist recruitment and fake news. She has explored many of these questions as a Graduate Fellow with Yale Law

School's Information and Society Project, where she helped publish research in the Harvard Law Review on how social media companies police content. This year, Beth developed an independent study to investigate censorship by Internet providers, presenting her findings at the 2017 United Nations Internet Governance Forum in Geneva. While at Jackson, Beth served as a research assistant for undergraduates in Global Affairs courses and graduate students in policy development courses. During the summers, Beth worked for Thomson Reuters on privacy-enhancing digital products and for Accountability Lab in Liberia to launch an innovation hub. Prior to Yale, she worked for three nonprofit organizations on human rights in Africa and the Middle East where she designed programs to protect freedom of expression and assembly. After graduation, Beth hopes to join an internal policy team of a technology company to better encode civil rights into the technologies enabling global communication.
