Anyone can be a "name dropper" or post a pic with a famous politician they happened to pull aside for a quick shot. But what does it take to empower your audience? Not to mention your funders?

In today's episode, Tiffany Cross, Editor of 'The Beat' (thebeatdc.com) -- Washington, D.C.'s Inclusive Political Pulse--shares her strategies for being "street smart" about networking; namely, creating real, tangible value to empower the people who have given us the privilege of following us or signing up for our lists.

We're kicking off the New Year with a two-part series on Seniors and Technology.

My guest for Part 1 is Thomas Kamber. Tom is Founder and Executive Director of OATS, where he has helped over 20,000 senior citizens get online, built more than 30 free technology centers, created the seniorplanet.org digital community, and launched the Senior Planet Exploration Center—the country’s first technology-themed community center for older adults.

Prior to founding OATS, Tom worked as a tenant organizer working with low-income residents in Harlem and the South Bronx. He has a B.A. in Latin from Columbia College and a PhD in Political Science from the City University of New York.

The representation of Blacks and Latinos at Google is notoriously low, with each group's representation at the company in the low-single digits.
But what is the company doing to understand more about why these gaps persist among their technical employees?

Here to discuss Google's efforts to inform parents and educators about how to help their kids succeed in computer science is Dr. Sephr Hejazi Moghadam, Head of Research and Development, K-12 Pre-University Education at Google. Previously, Sepehr was an Associate at both A.T. Kearney and Booz Allen. He also served as Associate Director of Teacher Effectiveness for the New York City Department of Education.

Sepehr received a PhD from Columbia University, where his dissertation was on the Treatment of African Americans in Education Research. He also has a Masters from Stanford and Bachelors from UC Santa Barbara.

Achievement gaps in math and science are well known, but there are many contributing factors. One we haven't heard much about is the effect of a lack of teacher diversity on student outcomes … until now.


Hannah Putman is the Director of Research at the National Council on Teacher Quality. Hannah's recent work includes a study on trends in teacher diversity in collaboration with researchers from the Brookings Institution, an examination of 100 early childhood teacher preparation programs, and a report that quantified the rigor in coursework offered by teacher preparation programs. Previously, Hannah taught seventh and ninth grade English for three years in the Bronx, New York, as a Teach For America corps member. She holds BA's in English and Government and Politics from the University of Maryland, an MS in Teaching from Pace University, and an MPP from the George Washington University with a focus on education policy and evaluation.

Companies that market predictive policing technologies make dubious claims about their actual ability to predict crime, harming socioeconomically disadvantaged groups in the process.

David Robinson (@dgrobinson) is a Principal at Upturn, a public interest technology and policy consulting firm.

Diversity and inclusion in tech has been a hot topic for several years, and not just in Silicon Valley. The feds often hire Silicon Valley-based companies for government contracts. But what role will diversity and inclusion play in the new Trump administration? And what does the ugly election of 2016 reveal about how policymakers should approach diversity and inclusion in a country that seems, in many ways, much angrier and much more divided than many thought?

Joining me to discuss this is Melinda Epler co-Founder of Change Catalyst.

Few question the value of high speed broadband in schools. It enables deeper, student-centered learning, giving students the opportunity to apply what they learn, such as by developing content, or learn remotely by participating in virtual coursework. Still, though, according to Education Superhighway, 23% of school districts don’t meet minimum speed thresholds, translating to 21 million students who lack access to sufficient broadband in school. In addition, schools who have access today may not have access as time progresses as traffic increases and bandwidth requirements go up.

Here to explain what state authorities can do to promote broadband in schools is Tracy Weeks, Executive Director of SETDA--the State Educational Technology Director’s Association.
