The Aspen Tech Policy Hub is accepting applications for two training programs to occur in Summer and/or Fall 2021. Modeled off of tech incubators like Y Combinator, the Hub takes tech experts, teaches them the policy process through intensive training programs, and encourages them to develop outside-the-box solutions to society’s programs. To date, the Hub has trained 57 technologists through its programs.
Applications are open through March 1, 2021 for the two training programs:
- The Aspen Tech Policy Hub Fellowship is a full-time, paid, ten-week program that teaches technology experts the policy process through an in-residence program in the Bay Area. The program is ideal for technologists interested in building better tech policy, whether that be within government or more broadly as an external advocate or from within the tech industry.
- The Tech Executive Leadership Initiative is a part-time, unpaid, online, ten-week program, co-sponsored by the Hub, that provides senior technology professionals with a unique leadership opportunity to strengthen their executive skills through real-world engagement with government problems. Through experiential learning with real government technology policy challenges, leaders hone their skills to work effectively with dedicated public servants and mitigate risk on technology projects.
More information about the programs and details to apply can be found here. This recruitment webinar provided an overview of the program offerings and gave prospective applicants an opportunity to ask questions to Hub staff and alumni.
