Baroness Beeban Kidron OBE; British Filmmaker, Founder and Chair of 5Rights Foundation, and Crossbench Life peer in the House of Lords, will be joining Professor Henrietta Bowden-Jones OBE (President of the RSM Psychiatry Section) to navigate us through her career in filmmaking, talk about her experience in Parliament, and discuss her exceptional efforts in transforming the digital world with children and young people in mind.
Baroness Kidron is best known for directing the Bafta-winning miniseries and adaption of Jeanette Winterson’s autobiography, Oranges Are Not the Only Frui and Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, amongst many others.
She founded IntoFilm, an educational charity which sets up after-school film clubs in schools in England and Wales, and more recently Kidron founded 5Rights Foundation; a charity that works to create policy and practical solutions to build the digital world children and young people deserve.
Kidron is a member of the UN Broadband Commission for Sustainable Development, the Global Council for Extended Intelligence; and the UNICEF Artificial Intelligence and Child Rights Policy Guidance Group. She is also an advisor to Duncan McCann in his court case against Google for misusing children’s data.
