On Thursday, January 5, 2017, the Joint Center convened a roundtable discussion in San Francisco of 15 of the nation’s top law professors who focus on the intersections of technology and innovation, the law, and communities of color.
In 2017, the Joint Center will examine technological shifts in our culture and economy anticipated over the next decade, and implications for communities of color. Based on the feedback from the law professors and future sessions, the Joint Center will produce research reports, policy briefs, and policy videos to maximize opportunities and mitigate challenges for communities of color stemming from innovation.
The Joint Center is also identifying and supporting a network of scholars who are focused on innovation and communities of color. This network will be a platform for the scholars to support each other, for the scholars to provide input into the Joint Center’s research, and for the scholars to ultimately shape policymaking by elected and appointed officials.
