Advisors

The FWD50 2022 advisory board draws on some of the best minds in government, innovation, academia and civic technology to help us steer the content and format of our annual event.

While we’re incredibly grateful for their time and commitment, their participation as advisors should not be seen as an endorsement or promotion of the conference.

Opinions expressed by our advisors related to FWD50 are their own, and not endorsed by or representative of other organizations with which they are associated.
