Description

Casting A Wider Net:

We are in the midst of a historic revolution. The digital world is rewiring every aspect of our lives. From how we shop, eat, sleep, play, stay healthy and communicate, everything is connected. But is technology really neutral? Where are the challenges? Who is being left out and how can we use technology to foster inclusion instead? Can we prevent it from hurting our relationships? Will we ever be able to unplug?

On March 19th at Booz Allen Hamilton in Tysons, VA, join us for a TEDxTysons after-work salon as we discuss the possibilities and challenges of our rapidly growing digital world.

Two speakers below and two more plus our host will be annouced shortly.

Jenifer Joy Madden is an independent health journalist, award-winning community advocate, and founder of DurableHuman.com. Blending her science knowledge and way with words, she has contributed to ABC News, The Washington Post, the “Today” Show Parenting Team, and scores of other news and information outlets. Madden is also an adjunct professor of broadcast and digital journalism at the highly acclaimed Newhouse School of Public Communications of Syracuse University, as part of its Washington, D.C.-based graduate-level Capstone program.

She’s now considered a “tech hygienist” for the effective, practical strategies she offers for living in harmony with technology.

Offline, Madden builds literal bridges to greater well-being. She is an appointed county transportation commissioner, having championed a network of walking, biking, and bus connections to the growing city of Tysons.
