On Empowering Action Through Innovative Technologies - A NEW Conversation with Rhiana Spring
Play • 38 min

Join me for today’s episode where I will be catching up with Rhiana Spring, the founder and executive director of Spring ACT. Spring ACT is an organisation connecting human rights and technology to empower people to take action and eliminate global social injustices.

Their flagship product is called Sophia, the world's first chatbot empowering survivors of domestic violence to gather potential evidence and seek help wherever they are in the world.

I highly encourage you to listen back to the conversation from Episode 37 to be reminded of Spring ACT’s mission and listen to today's episode to hear how Rhiana’s journey has evolved over the past 18 months.
