What to fix


Victoire Rio is a global tech accountability practitioner and advocate and one of the world’s leading experts on social media monetization and its impact on information integrity.

She is the founder and executive director of WHAT TO FIX, a non-profit working to mitigate digital harms by focusing the tech accountability conversion on systemic diagnosis and globally-sound solutions.

Prior to founding WHAT TO FIX, Victoire led tech accountability efforts out of Myanmar, spearheading Myanmar civil society’s engagement with tech companies from 2016-2023, as the country went though a genocide, a civil war, a pandemic, an election, a military coup and a revolution. Alongside her work in Myanmar, she helped convene the Next Billion Network, a community of practice bringing together frontline actors from a range of high risk contexts.

She’s looked extensively at the role and abuse of social media in crisis and authoritarian contexts and has pioneered a range of investigation, documentation, risk mitigation and advocacy strategies that have fueled systemic change to platforms’ products, policies, enforcement and global engagement.

Victoire holds a MA in Conflict, Security and Development from King’s College London. Originally from France, she has lived and worked in Myanmar, Cambodia, Thailand, Haiti, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the UK, and the US.
