Hope you are well. See attached and below Open Government Partnership event in case of interest.
I hope this email finds you well and safe.
On behalf of the Open Government Partnership (OGP) I am writing to invite you to the RightsCon side-event “Inside the black box: Making public-sector algorithms accountable to citizens and communities”. This invite-only roundtable will bring together implementers of reforms related to algorithmic accountability from OGP national and local members, with civil society and other partners to discuss the issue of civil society and community engagement in algorithmic accountability policy.
The session will be held virtually and is scheduled to take place on Wednesday June 9, 6:00 am ET/ 10:00 am GMT/ 10:00 pm Wellington.
This roundtable will build on the meetings of OGP’s informal open algorithms network, where the governments of Canada, France, New Zealand, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom meet to discuss the implementation of reforms on opening algorithms, including through commitments in their OGP action plans.
Building on our partnership with the AI Now Institute and Ada Lovelace Institute to develop the first global study evaluating the initial wave of algorithmic accountability policy, this session will discuss the preliminary findings of this report and provide an opportunity to share country experiences, including from government implementing agencies that have expressed interest in advancing this agenda.
Attached you will find a document with more information about the event. We will send an agenda for the session and a draft summary of the findings of the study the week before the meeting.
Please feel free to reach out to us to suggest other colleagues that would be interested in joining this conversation.
We kindly ask you to confirm your participation by responding to this email ( firstname.lastname@example.org). We would be delighted if you can join us and look forward to the discussion.
