FCC modernization not without challenges
October 21, 2016
The Federal Communications Commission is often touted as the golden agency for its massive IT overhaul efforts, but one FCC official said Thursday that work isn’t always painless.
David Stegon was a staff reporter for FedScoop and StateScoop from 2011-2014.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton addressed the agency’s TechWomen Conference that took place Monday in San Francisco.
Launched by Clinton last year, TechWomen builds on her vision of “smart power” diplomacy. It embraces the full range of diplomatic tools, in this case technology, to bring people together for greater understanding and empower women and girls worldwide.
TechWomen partners with the Institute of International Education and the Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology. It is a public-private partnership in which more than 20 leading U.S. companies participated by hosting international mentees during the 2011 inaugural program.
