We are thrilled to announce that Cyber Collective is a funding recipient of Omidyar Network.

“The Responsible Technology movement needs translators and community builders who can expand conversations about data, privacy, cyber security and algorithmic bias to include all voices and especially young people of color. We’re thrilled to support and learn from Tazin Khan and her team at Cyber Collective as they work to engage young people as partners in the responsible technology movement. “ - Emma Leiken, Omidyar Network

Omidyar Network is a social change venture that reimagines critical systems, and the ideas that govern them, to build more inclusive and equitable societies—for the benefit of the many, not just the few—across the globe. Omidyar Network envisions a world in which individuals have the social, economic, and democratic power to thrive.

At Cyber Collective, we are working towards a world where technology is overwhelmingly a force for good; where people experience true autonomy and agency in their relationships with technology; and where the culture of technology shifts from a powerful few to the powerful many. And we’re striving to help one million people become more safe, secure, and confident online.

As we look to the future, we’re aiming for deep impact. We will uncover what actions people are taking to secure themselves online after accessing our resources or attending our workshops. We’ll collaborate with our broad audiences via workshops and presentations to chart a new map for the future of technology and tech ethics. And we’ll push the industry to be more human-centered and transparent through our partnerships focused on humanizing and simplifying complex information.

Since our founding in 2019, we’ve built considerable awareness around data and privacy via social media. We’ve amassed over 13,000 Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn followers, reaching more than 300,000 accounts with our educational content. We’re growing our follower base by 20% every month, and our content has an impressive 7% engagement rate (compared with a benchmark of 1.2%). More than 2,500 people have attended our workshops, and 94% of attendees reported that the sessions inspired them to make changes in their online behaviors.

Receiving this funding from Omidyar is the first step of an incredible partnership, please join us in celebrating this joyous occasion!
