Europe Policy Manager, Access Now
Fanny is the Europe Policy Manager at Access Now, an NGO that defends and extends the digital rights of users at risk around the world. For the past two years, Fanny has served as one of the few civil society members of the European Union’s High Level Expert Group on Artificial Intelligence, where she has been able to positively impact European AI policy. She found her calling to protect human rights and hold powerful actors accountable while working at the Hungarian Civil Liberties Union. Fanny believes that we must understand the intersection of human rights and technology to ensure that the same rights that people enjoy offline are also protected online.
