ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt Honored for Tech Innovation on 'Recode 100' List

The rankings honor 100 innovative business leaders across industries
New York, NY, ADL CEO and National Director Jonathan Greenblatt has been named to the first-ever Recode 100 list, placing him among some of the top luminaries in tech, business and media “who mattered in 2017.”

The entry, No. 77 on the list, credits Greenblatt for “evolving the century-old Anti-Defamation League to fight white supremacy, anti-Semitism and other forms of extremism in the digital age” and describes now the storied civil rights organization is ramping up its work with social media and tech firms in Silicon Valley and looking at ways to use new technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence, to sanitize platforms of hate speech, rather than relying on human filters.

“We shouldn’t be surprised that extremists exploit new media,” Greenblatt tells Recode. “Fifty years ago, extremists were hiding behind hoods and burning crosses. Today, they’re hiding behind avatars and burning up Twitter.”

Under Greenblatt’s stewardship, ADL recently launched its Center for Technology and Society, focused on tackling its civil rights mission in the digital space at a time when online hate tears at the fabric of our society. Headquartered in Silicon Valley, the new Center examines the issue globally, bringing a proactive approach by working in partnership with industry, government, academia, and nonprofit groups to develop smart strategies and practical solutions to address today’s biggest challenges.

The Center also partners with the leading entrepreneurs and innovators who are reinventing our world, conducts cutting-edge research, and applying ADL’s expert analysis and reporting to enable online civility and stop cyberhate.

The Recode 100 honors the leaders, movement-starters, engineers, negotiators, and creatives, who have been the most productive and innovative people this year across the industries Recode covers: tech, media, commerce, transportation and more.
