From Change.gov to Twitter Diplomacy

6-7PM, Sanford School of Public Policy

Join Connect2Politics for a discussion about technology and citizen engagement with Macon Phillips (T ’00), former Director of Digital Strategy in the Obama White House and the current Bureau Coordinator for International Information Programs at the U.S. Department of State. Phillips was the 2008 Obama campaign’s digital guru and the man behind many of the Obama White House’s digital innovations (Change.gov and WhiteHouse.gov just to name a few). He also ran the new media program for the Presidential Transition Team and served as the deputy director of the Obama campaign’s new media department. Phillips will talk about his role in leading teams to create change in our increasingly connected world. RSVP. Sanford School Room 05.
