About

Beatrice Martini is the Human Rights Technology Lead at Aspiration.

Her work focuses on: building technology capacity strategies in support of global nonprofit human rights organisations, capturing the scope and scale of the role technology plays in human rights efforts in different contexts, and exploring ways to create an inclusive, shared language when discussing human rights technology.

Originally from Italy, she’s based in Berlin, Germany. She has been working as capacity builder, curator, and facilitator with nonprofit organisations, grassroots initiatives, and funders alike. She’s passionate about exploring how intersectional approaches to technology can most effectively serve justice and rights, has been involved in open source initiatives and peer-learning projects and loves reaching productive outcomes through participatory processes.

At Open Knowledge from 2013 to 2014, she organised and curated the Open Knowledge Conference 2013 and Open Knowledge Festival 2014. In 2012, she co-founded OpenTechSchool, a distributed community initiative organizing inclusive technology workshops currently counting 17 local groups around the world.
