Economics, Public Policy, and Technology

"I have always been interested in public policy, particularly regarding the issues of education and gender equality. Learning economics helped me understand how people make choices and how public policy can influence those choices, and I realized how important of a skill economic analysis is when looking at the potential impact of different policies. In an increasingly digital world, technology fosters innovation, but also brings new risks and challenges to our daily lives. Public policy is vital to balancing technology and the wellbeing of our society. With this in mind, I wanted to create regular workshops so that everyone could have learning opportunies about these topics too.
