The impact of the coronavirus pandemic has reminded American families of the enormous possibilities and advantages of technology today and in the future. We’ve also experienced the hazards and inequities of technology. Many have called for a coordinated federal effort to harness its potential and overcome its inequities. Please join Duke Health, UNC School of Law, and UNC Health for this public town hall, led by the Future of Tech Commission, to generate input and feedback on the most urgent tech policy issues facing our economy and democracy.
The Future of Tech Commission is a private, independent and bipartisan working group developed in response to discussions with the White House and the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) to recommend a comprehensive tech policy agenda for the nation. The ideas and feedback generated from this event and diverse communities and groups across the country will be used to craft key tech policy measures, and set the stage to implement a robust tech agenda with bipartisan support.
We’ll be discussing how federal policy, state policy, and public-private partnership opportunities can support advancing innovations in health and workforce development to create pathways to opportunity and economic security. Topics will include addressing health equity, social determinants of health, incentives for increased innovation, and AI and the opportunities and challenges it presents in promoting equitable workforce development systems.
The town hall is free and open to the public. Registration is required.
