This month, Agile Cloud Consulting is thrilled to announce that we have joined PledgeNoHate.tech as a Founding Member.
What we do with technology matters, and what it accelerates in our society and the world can drive incredible change at scale. We’re joining PledgeNoHate.tech to demonstrate that we’re cognizant that not all outcomes accelerated by technology are equal. The technology industry must more deeply understand and engage with how technology contributes to extremism, beginning with the United States.
Part of this understanding means finding ways to ensure that technology isn’t accelerating outcomes that detract from democracy, liberties, and rights. PledgeNoHate.tech is leveraging the Southern Poverty Law Center Extremist Files, specifically the Extremist Groups list, as its primary measure of extremism, and we are proactively choosing to ensure that what we do with technology does not further enable it in the United States.
Agile Cloud Consulting’s Promise
Agile Cloud Consulting promises to our customers, especially those whose work is deeply connected to democracy and social justice, that we will not simultaneously enable their detractors with our services. We promise to our staff that, as an organization, we take the threat of extremism in the United States seriously and commit to a journey of learning that can be integrated into our work.
There’s so much more that we can do to help stop extremism, but we need a place to start. This is why we’ve joined PledgeNoHate.tech. We hope that others in our ecosystem will join us in this journey because together we can create a community of business leaders who stand firmly against enabling extremism, learn from each other, and integrate screening for extremism into our applications, platforms, and services proactively and positively. We want our customers to ask us why we’ve joined PledgeNoHate.tech as part of evaluating our services, and we hope that they feel empowered to ask other businesses serving them this same question.
