More about this project

Right now, we lack sufficient spaces that bring together experts from companies, governments and civil society to collaborate constructively to develop policy and product solutions to create a fairer, safer, more accessible web for everyone. We built the Tech Policy Design Lab to change this.

The Lab — a flagship initiative of the Contract for the Web — will accelerate meaningful multi-sector collaboration, applying the right mix of expertise and real experiences to prototype and create effective, workable product and policy solutions to some of the biggest tech challenges of our time.

Our pilot project brought together diverse groups of experts to take on the rise of online abuse and harassment against women and girls. The consultations, policy workshops and advocacy resulted in Facebook, Google, TikTok and Twitter — four of the world’s largest tech companies — making unprecedented commitments to tackle the abuse of women on their platforms. After a successful pilot, the lab is ready to take on the next big challenge.
