On November 18, 2020, the Aspen Tech Policy Hub, the National Conference on Citizenship’s Project Redesign, and the Tech Talent Project hosted a public event celebrating the launch of the pilot Tech Executive Leadership Initiative (TELI). TELI is a pilot 8-week skills-building initiative to prepare experienced technology leaders to engage effectively with public sector challenges.
The pilot TELI program began on August 22nd and ran part-time through mid-October. Participants include senior leaders from well-known tech advocacy organizations, non-profit organizations, and private companies; entrepreneurial executives who have built and grown successful startups; and innovators who have led digital transformation efforts at large organizations on their own path to modernization.
During the event, TELI participants presented solutions they devised during a challenge exercise sprint on improving Census data collection. The event also included a keynote address by Amanda Renteria, CEO of Code for America, and a celebration to mark the end of the pilot program.
