Street Diligence Respect Zone Initiative

Street Diligence Respect Zone Initiative

Street Diligence has recently taken the initiative, along with UNESCO and Microsoft, to adopt the Respect Zone Label. During a Street Talk, a weekly gathering of the company where SD gives a chance to employees and guest speakers to deliver presentations on topics of their choice, Nathan Coen, co-founder of Respect Zone and part of SD’s summer intern team, presented his work during a Street Talk highlighting the importance and benefits of Respect Zone.

Respect Zone is a leading French non-profit and non-governmental organization that combats cyber-violence. While supporting free expression, it has devised an effective and open labeling system to promote tolerance using counter-speech. Respect Zone helps individuals to think of a preventive mode before they share or post online. Its goal is to build on this success and become an influential global organization helping to overcome and prevent cyber-violence.

By displaying the self-certifying ethical Respect Zone label on our website, Street Diligence becomes one of the first U.S. based companies to enter the Respect Zone. By entering the Respect Zone, Street Diligence engages itself to refrain posting non-respectful posts and to moderate its website by either criticizing or deleting violent comments as stated in the Respect Zone Charter.

Join Street Diligence in becoming a tech leader in combating cyber violence and join the Respect Zone!
