NDWA Labs is the innovation arm of the National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA).
Founded in 2015, NDWA Labs was launched to experiment with new strategies for improving marketplace norms for domestic workers, including launching sustainable ventures and collaborating with the private sector. Our approach is to innovate on old solutions, build smart and practical tools and products, and form partnerships that help us reach and lift standards for domestic workers. In particular, NDWA Labs has been experimenting with ways to use technology to ensure we are shaping a future of work that works for all of us, not just some of us. Learn more about our innovations.
