Apryl Williams | Speaker Biography

Faculty Associate at Harvard University's Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society
Author of "Not My Type: Automating Sexual Racism in Online Dating," featured in Time Magazine
Consultant to the United States Congress on developing a progressive legislative agenda for AI

Apryl Williams, Ph.D., is a Faculty Associate at Harvard University's Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society and a former Senior Fellow in Trustworthy Artificial Intelligence (AI) at the Mozilla Foundation. She is the author of Not My Type: Automating Sexual Racism in Online Dating, which has been featured in Time Magazine. 

Black feminism, technology studies, critical internet studies, critical race theory, and critical media studies influence Apryl’s work. She explores the lived black experience as it is shaped by algorithmic technocultures, the gendered black body, and race and racism as they manifest and evolve in our contemporary artificially fragmented society. 

Currently, Apryl is consulting with the United States Congress to develop a progressive legislative agenda for AI. She has also worked with Facebook, Instagram, Her, Data & Society, and Grindr to advocate for communities that have been historically underrepresented and underserved in the design and implementation of emergent technologies.
