The Internet infrastructure industry faces a diverse set of serious issues ranging from security, safety, and privacy issues to forward-thinking business practices. To address these issues, we need to learn from and cooperate with each other along with other like-minded organizations who understand the nuts and bolts of the Internet.
The i2Coalition Insights & Innovation Committee facilitates important discussions and cooperation on methods and practices that will promote security, safety and privacy, and issues relating to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
More on the i2Coalition Insights & Innovation Committee
To empower member organizations with access to information and knowledge that help them make better decisions regarding technology and business procedures, as well as removing barriers to underserved groups within the tech industry.
The i2Coalition Insights & Innovation committee plans a series of webinars discussing current issues within the tech industry relating to i2Coalition’s core issues. Topics include technological and procedural best practices, as well as diversity, equity and inclusion. Building a better and safer Internet requires new ways of thinking and the inclusion of more diversity among those who build, maintain, and use it.
The committee finds leading experts and technologists to present their own efforts, research and points of view in an online webinar format for i2Coalition members.
