In our ever-developing technological world, it has become imperative that in cities across the country, especially one that operates as intricately as Los Angeles, technology is working effectively to better communicate with citizens, while also innovating transportation, public safety, and economic development. Who’s at the head of this important job? Jeanne Holm, Senior Technology Advisor to Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and Deputy Chief Information Officer.
Holm has led a varied career, from her role as Chief Knowledge Architect as NASA, to Evangelist for Data.Gov, the open data initiative for the White House. How is she bringing all of her technological expertise and experience to the city of Los Angeles? What are her plans for the future to ensure that LA runs technologically soundly? What role does technology play in helping a large city operate? In her role, Jeanne’s expertise can influence policy for autonomous vehicles to robotics and homeless initiatives in the City of Los Angeles.
In partnership with UCLA Extension, Holm will discuss these points, in addition to her career and education as it relates to our great city and the education she received at UCLA. She also has an esteemed career of nearly 20 years as a distinguished instructor at UCLA Extension.
