Policy, the Juvenile Death Penalty, Tech and More: A Discussion with Jotaka Eaddy
- Event Location Online
The School of Public Policy hosts Jokata Eaddy. Recently described as the “Olivia Pope of Silicon Valley” by Forbes Magazine, Jotaka Eaddy is a leading voice in social impact tech and a pivotal force in connecting Silicon Valley and Washington DC. Jotaka will share her numerous experiences in the policy space, including her work to eliminate the youth death penalty and advocating for increased diversity and impact metrics in the tech sector. Additionally, we will discuss the impact of the women in policy; drawing on Jotaka’s work as founder of Win With Black Women, a collective that was pivotal in the selection of the Biden-Harris ticket. This was significant as 2020 was the centennial year of the 19th Amendment that gave women the right to vote but Black women were still denied full access to the ballot box.
