Website Pathos Labs
using the power of entertainment to engineer new norms.
Organization Mission: Pathos Labs is a nonprofit laboratory focused on exploring ways that media and entertainment can most effectively accelerate compassion, advance equity, and dismantle hatred.
The Vision: The world is exponentializing largely due to the advent of disruptive technology. How do we counter the weaponization of technology and media that exponentialize hatred, divisiveness, and interrupt social progress, equity, civility and the dignifying of communities that have been systemically seen as “other”? How can we flip the script, and change the narrative? That is why Pathos Labs exists – to explore ways that media, and entertainment can be used as powerful levers to predispose our world to a more compassionate, dignified, and equitable future.

Your First Mission: PopShift is a virtual event focused on shifting narratives in popular mass media to promote prosocial behavior. By connecting influential television and film writers with behavioral scientists with expertise in prejudice reduction, depolarization, and healthy intergroup relations, PopShift seeks to translate proven research-based interventions into mass media storylines and content.
