Open MIC works to foster greater corporate accountability at media and technology companies.
Our primary tool is shareholder engagement. Working with impact investors, Open MIC (Open Media and Information Companies Initiative) identifies, develops and supports campaigns that promote values of openness, equity, privacy, and diversity – values that provide long-term benefits for individuals, companies, the economy and the health of democratic society.
Current Open MIC initiatives include racial and gender diversity in the tech workforce; algorithmic accountability; hate speech and media manipulation; net neutrality; and online privacy. We are currently working on campaigns that target Amazon, Twitter, Google, and Facebook.
