Working Towards A Web Built For Everyone, By Everyone image

Web Foundation co-founders Sir Tim Berners-Lee and Rosemary Leith open a discussion to rethink how our digital world is shaped.
Since Tim Berners-Lee invented the web 32 years ago, it has reshaped our world. But today, who gets to shape the digital technologies that govern our lives? Join us to find out how the World Wide Web Foundation is opening up the development of tech policy so that our digital tools better meet the needs of all those who use them in a fair, equitable and inclusive way.
This online event is part of the Science Museum Group’s Open Talk series and is held in collaboration with the Web Foundation to coincide with the launch of the Tech Policy Design Lab, which the Web Foundation has created to tackle the biggest tech challenges facing our societies. The Lab brings experts from governments, companies, and civil society together with diverse groups of people to create product and policy solutions that can shape a better, fairer, safer web. Hear from a panel of experts to find out what’s next for the Lab, following its successful pilot tackling the abuse of women online.
Introduced by Sir Tim Berners-Lee and Rosemary Leith, co-founders of the World Wide Web Foundation.
Further speakers to be announced.
This event will have live subtitles by Stagetext delivered by MyClearText.
