Meet the INHOPE Board, Þóra Jónsdóttir
Get to know the people behind INHOPE with our board member spotlight.
Why do you think INHOPE is important?
INHOPE is a strong network of organisations and people who connect on a common goal. We all are fighting to save children from online abuse and exploitation and using the information and knowledge and best practices that we share between our members, we can keep the conversation going to stop the fight against child sexual abuse material (CSAM).
What do you see as the biggest challenge for INHOPE in the next five years?
We need to stay relevant when it comes to working in online child protection. The value we add is by connecting non-profits and technology companies to fight online child sexual abuse and exploitation. In addition, ways in which we can grow our success is by expanding our reach and doing so by finding sustainable long-term funding methods.
Why did you decide to become a part of the INHOPE board?
Having been a member of the organisation for several years, it's great to have the opportunity to influence the present and future of the organisation and to share the responsibility of governing INHOPE.
What is your vision for the future?
A world free from child abuse and exploitation, where everyone comprehends the fundamental freedoms and inherent rights of children.
If you could change one thing about the internet, what would it be?
I would like to see people communicate appropriately, have appropriate contact and conduct. Essentially, the internet should ensure better e-safety.
