Match Group on Monday will announce that Tracey Breeden has been hired as its first-ever head of safety and social advocacy, a newly-created role.

Why it matters: The hire speaks to growing concerns over harassment, data privacy, social bias and minority safety on dating platforms. Match Group is one of the world's largest dating tech companies.

Details: In her new role, Breeden will oversee Match Group’s trust and safety policies and initiatives across all of its products, including Tinder, Hinge, OkCupid, Match, and Plenty of Fish.

  • Breeden will be responsible for helping the product teams at each dating app invest in new safety features and technologies.
  • She will work with a group of experts and advocates involved in the study and prevention of sexual assault, sex trafficking, abuse, harassment, and similar issues called the Match Group Advisory Council (MGAC).
  • She will report to Gary Swidler, chief operating officer and chief financial officer at Match Group. 

Prior to joining Match, Breeden was head of Uber’s women’s safety and gender-based violence operations.

The big picture: Match has pushed to get ahead of issues and regulatory pressure around sexual assault, violence and harassment on dating apps.

  • Earlier this year, it became the first major tech company to publicly support the EARN IT Act, a bipartisan Senate bill that aims to reduce online child sexual exploitation by limiting tech platforms' liability protections.
  • The company has implemented a number of features around safety and security in recent months, including a new date check-in feature and photo verification.

Nxivm cult leader Keith Raniere, 60, was sentenced to 120 years in prison on Tuesday in federal court for sex trafficking among other crimes, the New York Times reports.

Catch up quick: Raniere was convicted last summer with sex trafficking, conspiracy, sexual exploitation of a child, racketeering, forced labor and possession of child pornography. His so-called self-improvement workshops, which disguised rampant sexual abuse, were popular among Hollywood and business circles.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's Liberal government was reelected for a third term in the country's parliamentary elections — but without a majority, CBC and CTV News projected early Tuesday.

By the numbers: The Liberal Party needed to win 170 seats in the 338-seat House of Commons to form a majority government. Preliminary figures showed the party had won 158 seats just after 1:30a.m. ET, with over 91% of polling stations reporting.

A member of CIA director Bill Burns' team who traveled with him to India this month was treated for "symptoms consistent with Havana syndrome," CNN first reported Monday.

Why it matters: Current and former officials told the New York Times the incident signals a "possible escalation" in the mysterious neurological symptoms affecting as many as 200 Americans who've worked in overseas posts since 2016.
