Description

This series is now sold out. If you wish to put your name on the waitlist for possible cancellations and/or our next seminar in late winter/early fall of 2018, please click on the Register button and fill out a waitlist ticket.

The Public Policy Forum is offering a professional development opportunity for mid-to-high level public servants to better understand disruptive technologies and the way they are challenging policy and governance approaches. Government reactions often lag long behind technological changes; how can governments not only catch up, but reorient their organizations to reliably keep up in the future? It starts with understanding a panoply of powerful technology developments and their broader social and economic impacts.

This series of learning modules, designed for current and prospective government executives, provides a deep dive into a selection of emerging technologies, likely areas of disruption and impact, and an exploration of how governments around the world are reacting - or not - to a quickly shifting technological landscape. For each session, we’ll explore the common threads of information security, privacy, ethics, regulatory implications, sustainability, and data.
