Jean Dinco

Jean Linis-Dinco is a human rights activist in the Philippines. She is currently pursuing a Ph.D. at UNSW Canberra focusing on the analysis of government propaganda and mis/disinformation in the context of the Rohingya crisis in Myanmar. Jean's previous work has analysed media sentiments towards LGBTIQ communities in Nepal, cybersecurity in the South China Sea, the role of machines in the rising global transphobia, and the impact of securitising hate speech on marginalised communities in Aceh, Indonesia. In 2014, Jean has directed a Rainbow X—a film about the rising hate crimes against transgender people in the Philippines. The film won the Top Award from the International Association of Business Communicators in the same year. In 2018, Jean was selected as a Global Innovator for the Human Rights Campaign Global Innovative Advocacy Summit in Washington D.C. where she spoke about the role of film in raising awareness of human rights violations against LGBTQ. Jean’s work in the field of technology and human rights was acknowledged in 2022 when she was awarded by the Women in AI Ethics™ (WAIE) as one of the top 100 Women in Artificial Intelligence Ethics globally.
