Siobhan Harley (she/her)
Siobhan Harley is a digital and campaign strategist with nearly a decade of experience managing advocacy, public affairs and election campaigns in the UK and abroad. Working at the intersection of digital and politics - particularly for underrepresented groups - inspired her passion for digital citizenship and combating abuse online. She currently works as a Director in the London office of Mercury Public Affairs, where she advises governments on digital communications.
As part of the #DrawTheLine campaign, Glitch provided training to upskill the BT, EE & BT Sport teams to become good digital citizens. We helped to develop an algorithmic abuse tool to track the levels of abuse on Twitter, as well as shape new research which sadly confirms how increasingly unsafe our online spaces are.
We are campaigning to ensure that online abuse against women, and its disproportionate impact on racialised and minoritised communities, is reflected in the Online Safety Bill.
