During a Policy Executive Board (PxB) dinner in December, we were honored to have Congressman Will Hurd (R-TX), Ambassador Rufus Yerxa, President and CEO of the National Foreign Trade Council (NFTC), and Jeff Lambert from the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) join us for a lively discussion on what the next several months may hold for tech policy and larger geopolitical considerations. Each had a distinctive message to share:
One theme that seemed prevalent throughout the conversation, was around the tech workforce. In the wake of the election, all of our participants were focused on how we must find ways to engage more Americans in the promise of a good paying job. There are many opportunities through core IT occupations, as well as jobs that require technological literacy and we hope to spend time in 2017 advancing policies that will help more Americans enter a tech career pathway.
