[Hybrid] Rep. Ro Khanna: Digital Opportunity for All
March 11, 2022 @ 12:30 PM PST
Information technology has fundamentally changed the daily lives of Americans – crunching years of data in seconds and automating seemingly infinitely complex tasks. But advocates like Bay Area Congressman Ro Khanna are warning that two possible (and divergent) paths lie ahead: technology creating division and furthering inequality if left unchecked, or creating opportunity and healing fractures if carefully directed.
Rep. Khanna’s new book, Dignity in a Digital Age: Making Tech Work for All of Us, explains how democratic access to technology can strengthen every sector of the economy, create more inclusive communities and mend a fractured country. Using “progressive capitalism” to create jobs and opportunities for all Americans, especially the least fortunate, he’ll join us to give a blueprint of how to direct the future of the tech industry to be a powerful agent for positive change.
