  • Technology firms need to build empathy for government, and government needs to build empathy for industry. In the same way that tours of duty in prior generations including investing in the developing world (Peace Corps) or investing in under resources schools (Teach 4 America), our current crop of executives

    Technology firms need to build empathy for government, and government needs to build empathy for industry. In the same way that tours of duty in prior generations including investing in the developing world (Peace Corps) or investing in under resources schools (Teach 4 America), our current crop of executives & elected’s must build a pipeline of service that rotates in and out of tech & government so that technically minded folks (ie on AI) can inform regulations, and those who know how government stakeholder processes work can inform how tech engages the Public sector in the first place.

    Moreover, as new innovations shift the way we work — tech & worker voice organizations should be willing to work together to guide a future of work shaped by more automation & more disaggregated workers.
