WiCyS American University Student Chapter | 2022 American University Outstanding Technology Policy Changemaker Award Ceremony

November 18 @ 7:30 am - 10:30 am

This virtual event is the livestream of the 2022 AU Outstanding Tech Policy Changemaker Award, honoring 2022 Awardee Ms. Pamela Wright, Chief of Innovation at the National Archives and Records Administration and featuring inaugural recipient Doreen Bogdan-Martin, Secretary-General-Elect of the International Telecommunication Union.

Ms. Wright, who has accomplished so much during her time at NARA, most notably has lead her team to the digitization of over 170 million historical records, which is vital in creating inclusive access to much of our country and world’s history. Bogdan-Martin received AU’s inaugural Outstanding Technology Policy Changemaker Award in September 2021, recognizing her efforts to bridge the gender and digital divides, and just recently broke the glass ceiling at the ITU as she was elected the first woman to the role in the 157-year history of the union’s formation.

We hope you will join the livestream on November 18th, at 8:30am to hear more about Ms. Wright’s accomplishments and a keynote from Ms.Bogdan-Martin after her historic win.
