Joe Toscano

Joe Toscano is an award-winning designer, published author, and international keynote speaker and featured regularly on Fox News as a technology expert, along with other major media outlets. You may have seen Joe featured in The Social Dilemma or read his articles on Forbes. Watch his TEDx Talk, “Want to work for Google? You already do,” for a summary of his work.

Previously an Experience Design consultant for Google, Joe left Silicon Valley because he believes the industry misuses data and feels the issues need to be addressed through innovation rather than strict regulation. Since leaving, Joe has written a book, called Automating Humanity, and he has started the Better Ethics and Consumer Outcomes Network (BEACON), both focused on increasing technology literacy, discovering opportunities for purpose-driven innovation, and moving communities forward through purpose-driven innovation.

Joe's talks focus on how we can create a better, human-centered approach to designing the internet. His deepest knowledge is in privacy, data protection, digital literacy, and the larger conversation around data rights as human rights.
