To address the central role technology plays in our economy, work, communications, and social interactions, many government agencies–at the state and federal level–have named Chief Technologists or Chief Technology Officers to bring greater knowledge and skills into their work. On March 30, 2023, the Georgetown Institute for Technology Law and Policy is pleased to bring a group of these distinguished, trailblazing government officials together for a conversation about the strategies for keeping government nimble and responsive to the ever-changing landscape of technology.

Panelists include:

  • Stephanie T. Nguyen, Chief Technology Officer of the Federal Trade Commission
  • Laura Edelson, Chief Technologist of the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice
  • Erie Meyer, Chief Technologist of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
  • Ashkan Soltani, Executive Director of the California Privacy Protection Agency and former Chief Technologist of the FTC
