Ms Griffin is Chair and a founding member of the European Tech Alliance, which brings together companies from a variety of tech industries that have started and are scaling in Europe. It is the first alliance of its kind, and was established in response to the EU’s Digital Single Market Strategy, as it looks to amend and create an unprecedented amount of legislation covering the digital world. Its members work as a pool of knowledge and experience for policymakers as they look to create a functioning digital single market in the EU. Ms Griffin also sits on the board and is Vice President of the European Digital Media Association (EDiMA) in Brussels.
Prior to King, Ms Griffin led Facebook’s policy communications in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, with a focus on government transparency reporting, safety, security and privacy. She joined Facebook from political consultancy, having advised clients ranging from the Africa Progress Panel to governments such as Dubai and Singapore on public outreach.
Early in Ms Griffin’s career she helped to establish the China Programme at the London think tank, the Foreign Policy Centre, and lived in Shanghai where she taught Chinese and English and wrote textbooks.
Ms Griffin holds a BA in Politics and Classics from University College Dublin, and an MSc Econ in International Politics from the University of Wales, Aberystwyth.
