ACS Washington, DC: Transatlantic Reflections on the Power of Technology for Inclusion

German Marshall Fund of the United States, Washington, DC

Join the German Marshall Fund and the Washington, DC Lawyer Chapter of the American Constitution Society for a coffee conversation with experts on the impact of technology -- in either building or eroding diversity, inclusion and civil rights -- in the Transatlantic partner nations.

We will seek to arrive at a consensus-based summary of recommendations to improve the impact of technology on civil rights and human rights. We will explore such questions as:

  • Is technology, such as social media, strengthening or undermining our work as Trans-Atlantic leaders in advancing democracy and inclusion?
  • Is our technology ecosystem fully accessible yet to a range of populations, such as people with disability?
  • What role will artificial intelligence play in expanding or in eroding civil rights?
  • How do we best ensure that technology is utilized in support of the Transatlantic business case for diversity and inclusion?
