+1 Speaker Series - Allen Gunn - Rethinking Information Infrastructure for Civil Society

January 14, 2020 - 6:00pm to 7:20pm
Building 200, Room 203 - 450 Jane Stanford Way, Stanford, CA 94305

As civil society organizations become evermore dependent on digital technologies, insufficient attention is invested in strategically assessing, specifying and deploying information management and communications infrastructure at organizational, network, and sectoral levels.

This discussion will survey the current state of play, exploring and threat-modeling pressing challenges and unsolved problems with existing mission-critical digital infrastructure utilized by civil society stakeholders.

A final phase of the discussion will consider potential forward paths toward long-term control of our collective digital destiny.

The Comm230X +1 Speaker Series highlights evolving perspectives at the intersection of the social sector, digital technology, and contemporary society. Winter 2020 speakers are experts from social sector organizations and from the fields of law, journalism, technology, and policy, including Jen Schradie, Catherine Sandoval, and Victoria Baines. Topics covered in the series include journalism, criminal justice, technology use in the social sector, cyber security, technology policy, and digital activism & conservativism.
