The program works to align innovation and technology with the advancement of the common good by providing practical, data-driven insights and working with stakeholders to advance inclusive, sustainable solutions. We forge partnerships to ensure technology benefits all members of society.
Technology is rapidly advancing and shaping our world in ways we never thought possible. From smartphones to AI, technology is driving economic growth and innovation, but it is also reshaping the way we live, work, and interact with each other. With these advancements comes both opportunities and challenges.
The way in which technology is developed and implemented affects the lives of billions of people. As we move forward, it is crucial that we ensure that innovation and technology align with the advancement of the common good.
Our organization sees this moment as an opportunity for transformative change. We help decision-makers navigate the complex landscape of technology and society, to shape a future where technology works for everyone.
Our network of experts work across a range of industries and sectors, from healthcare to education to transportation. We produce practical, data-driven research on how technology can be used to promote social and economic equality, improve access to education and healthcare, and address pressing global issues such as climate change and inequality. We work hand-in-hand with stakeholders and decision-makers to advance solutions that are not only innovative but also inclusive and sustainable. And we forge long-term partnerships and coalitions to ensure that technology is not only developed, but also implemented in ways that benefit all members of society.
