Keeping Conversations Safe, Trusted and Professional
June 25, 2021
This week, we had the opportunity to meet with EU Commissioner for Justice Didier Reynders and talk through all of the work we’re doing to keep LinkedIn safe for our members. One of those steps includes formally joining the European Commission's Code of Conduct on Countering Illegal Hate Speech Online. While we have supported the Code of Conduct for many years through our parent company, Microsoft, today we are delighted to formally sign up to the Code as we take another direct step forward in our commitment to keep conversations on LinkedIn safe and respectful.
LinkedIn is a place for professional conversations where people come to connect, learn and find new opportunities. Given the current economic climate and the increased reliance jobseekers and professionals everywhere are placing on LinkedIn, our responsibility is to help create safe experiences for our members. We couldn’t be clearer that hate speech is not tolerated on our platform. LinkedIn is a strong part of our members’ professional identities for the entirety of their career--it can be seen by their employer, colleagues and potential business partners.
We make clear what’s expected of every member as they post, share and comment on the platform. As more people come to LinkedIn, we will continue to invest in our content review teams and our platform to help stop and prevent abuse, taking action on those who misuse the platform to help keep members safe.
