The Power of Digital to Fix Government
Sree Sreenivasan is one of the country's most respected digital luminaries, known for bringing tech solutions to sectors desperately in need of modernization. Single-handedly, he's sparked lasting change in four imperiled areas: Government, the Arts, Media, and Nonprofits.
As a journalist early in his career, Sree wrote for the New York Times and was a tech reporter for ABC, NBC, and CBS news in NYC. He then spent two decades as a faculty member at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, introducing an online journalism curriculum and establishing Columbia as an early leader in digital media. Later he co-founded the independent news site DNAinfo.
In 2013, Sree left journalism to become the Metropolitan Museum of Art's first Chief Digital Officer. During a three-year stint, he led a 70-person team charged with transforming the museum’s external presence and relationships with patrons.
Currently, Sree is the Chief Digital Officer for the City of New York. He's focused not only on supporting the city's burgeoning tech community, but also on increasing transparency and access to government using digital tools.
