The Newest Fellows Join a Growing Global Community of Early-Career Professionals in Internet Law & Policy
Washington, D.C. — Today, The Internet Law & Policy Foundry (The Foundry), a professional development organization composed of early-career professionals working across law, technology and policy, announced its newest class of 91 Fellows, hailing from leading Internet companies, professional services firms and major nonprofits.
Launched by the Internet Education Foundation (IEF), the Foundry fills a career development gap in Internet law and policy, especially as the field tackles critical issues facing society, including content moderation, cybersecurity, Internet access and privacy. This year’s Fellowship class represents the next generation of leaders in Internet law and policy, as they gain experience and showcase their skills while running the Foundry.
“We’re proud that the 2022 Class is the Foundry’s most selective and diverse cohort yet, with Fellows ranging in demographics, geography, ideology and skill sets,” said Tim Lordan, Executive Director at the Internet Education Foundation. “We look forward to seeing the Fellows bring their unique set of experiences to their events and content creation for the technology, law and public policy communities.”
Fellows will aim to foster a community of diverse voices that explore issues in the equitable development and governance of technology and the Internet through writing, network building and constructive debates. Fellows were selected through a competitive process and will hold their positions for two years.
While the Foundry is based in North America, the 2022 Fellows are a geographically diverse group found in: Africa, Asia, Europe and South America.
