Hugh Milward, General Manager Corporate Affairs, Microsoft UK 

The opportunity technology affords us is tremendous, closing huge distances in bringing people together, creating new economic and social prosperity, and advancing progress towards solving some of the world’s most difficult problems.  And yet these tools can disrupt society, damage and vulnerable and exacerbate inequality.  The work organisations can do by coming together to create a safer internet, to understand the issues and educate others, is invaluable.  Microsoft is proud to support Safer Internet Day and the incredible work done by Childnet, SWGFL, the IWF and others committed to this mission.
