Possible interventions include reform of laws and regulations; the introduction and implementation of gender-neutral laws; disseminate gender-sensitive awareness-raising campaigns on recently adopted legislation; gather citizen feedback on how laws affect specific populations; Improve company and industry policies and practices to attract and retain more women workers. Project teams can use these tools in their own legal or regulatory interventions and/or draw on this information to design new types of interventions that involve more sophisticated use of technology. Examples include virtual consultations between governments and WSMU in drafting legislation; gender-sensitive public-private e-dialogue (ePPD) consultations; and other online processes that influence the development of new regulations or legislation. Strong legal and regulatory frameworks aim to promote transparent, predictable and non-discriminatory processes. Digitalization can help women entrepreneurs meet legal and regulatory business requirements. For example, electronic transactions to obtain identification, register a business, or obtain a business license—areas where women tend to be disadvantaged due to social norms and mobility restrictions (World Bank Group, 2015)—can contribute to access and transparency. When used effectively, technology can contribute to less discriminatory and more standardized processes and provide viable approaches to overcoming some of the limitations women face. EGovernment services such as digital money transfers or public-private electronic dialogues (ePPDs) offer the opportunity to improve the online user experience for citizens, greater public participation, improved internal efficiency and productivity, and better access to information, such as data contained in electronic security registers (United Nations, 2012). Governments are beginning to actively promote stakeholder participation in the evaluation of laws and regulations related to digitization. Digitalization can also help ensure that women`s voices are heard in the formulation and implementation of laws and regulations. For example, public-private dialogues using digital tools (World Bank Group, 2015) provide opportunities for women to have direct conversations on critical business issues, share ideas, and develop more informed policies.

Reviews of legislation and regulations, as well as public budget proposals for business improvements, can be posted online for public review, with feedback from contractors sought to support more comprehensive feedback.
