New Digital Infrastructures of Workplace Health and Safety
By Aiha Nguyen
"Aiha leads the Labor Futures Initiative at Data & Society, which seeks to
better understand emergent disruptions in the labor force as a result of data- centric technological development,
and create new frames for understanding these disruptions through evidence-based research and collaboration with
stakeholders. Aiha guides research and engagement, with a birds-eye view of the stakeholders and actors in the
field of labor and technology.
She brings a practitioners perspective to Data & Society, having worked for over a decade in community and worker
advocacy and organizing.
Prior to joining Data & Society, she worked to raise job standards for retail, airport, and other service workers,
and addressed issues of food access, safety and security, and local governance at the Los Angeles Alliance for a
New Economy (LAANE). She has authored reports analyzing outsourced passenger service work at LAX; the impact of
automated self-checkout systems on public safety and jobs; and a baseline study of Orange County’s philanthropic
community." (Centre for Media, Technology and Democracy)
