Working with the World Economic Forum to Improve Online Trust & Safety

Since we launched last year, the Digital Trust & Safety Partnership has taken significant steps to promote a safer and more trustworthy internet. Engagement with other stakeholders is critical to this mission. Today, we’re proud to build on that progress as DTSP has recently joined the World Economic Forum’s Global Coalition for Digital Safety, an illustrious group of 35 public and private sector stakeholders working to develop innovations and advance collaborations that tackle harmful content and conduct online.

DTSP Executive Director David Sullivan will serve as co-chair of the Digital Safety Risk Assessment Framework, a new focus area in the Coalition that will work on evaluating how platforms should assess digital safety risks and measure the impact of interventions.

In addition to Sullivan, members of the Coalition include leaders from tech companies including Microsoft, Google, and Meta, as well as international organizations such as UNICEF and INTERPOL, as well as academics and civil society groups. The Coalition also includes foreign government officials including Ukraine Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Digital Transformation Mykhailo Fedorov and United Kingdom Office of Communications Chief Executive Dame Melanie Dawes.

DTSP is thrilled to be part of this global effort and looks forward to sharing with you all more updates as it continues its work on behalf of the Global Coalition for Digital Safety.
