Announcing New Pilot Tech Executive Leadership Program

Program prepares senior technology leaders with the skills critical to government service and public policy

San Francisco, CA, October 27, 2020 – The Aspen Tech Policy Hub is thrilled to announce the creation of the Tech Executive Leadership Initiative (TELI), a pilot 8-week skills-building initiative to prepare experienced technology leaders to engage effectively with public sector challenges. The pilot program is a collaboration between the Hub, Project Redesign, and the Tech Talent Project.

TELI provides senior technology professionals with a unique leadership opportunity to build their executive skills through real-world engagement with government, policy, and human-centered design. Through experiential learning with real service delivery challenges, leaders hone their skills to work effectively with dedicated public servants and mitigate risk on technology projects.  

The leadership training program, which was fully remote in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, began on August 22nd and ran part-time through mid-October. Participants included 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.

TELI has received generous support from multiple organizations including the Ford Foundation and the Beeck Center for Social Impact and Innovation at Georgetown University. For more information on TELI, please visit https://www.aspentechpolicyhub.org/teli/. TELI will also be hosting an event on November 18th to feature some of the work produced during the program. Registration can be found here.
