In 2018, the RightsCon community came together in Toronto, Canada, one of the world’s most diverse cities and an emerging hub for tech and innovation, to shape the future of human rights in the digital age. The summit was a historic convening, providing a unique opportunity to experience the impact and importance of our community’s collective work around the world.

RightsCon Toronto hosted 2,520 registered participants from 118 countries and more than 700 organizations. The program was our most ambitious to date with 450+ sessions including workshops, panels, private meetings, and roundtables organized into 18 thematic tracks. In line with the RightsCon mission to drive forward our community’s work with tangible outcomes, the summit launched the Toronto Declaration towards protecting the rights to equality and non-discrimination in machine learning systems.
