NSBE PDC 2023 - Serving Your Local Government as an Engineer

Share this with your network

Local governments are increasingly facing STEM-related challenges such as climate resilience, election security, technology for community safety, public assistance programs, and vaccine policies. Advances in technology and engineering present real opportunities to improve these government services, but local policymakers are often ill-equipped to handle them and the associated social, legal, and political questions. Because engineers with relevant technical backgrounds are often best able to understand the risks, and opportunities, of new technologies, these questions present high-impact opportunities for engagement. This conference session will feature opportunities for engineers to engage in their communities in the leadup to the election season and beyond. Attendees will engage with real case studies, step-by-step guides, and hands-on activities from Engineers & Scientists Acting Locally, allowing them to leave with concrete resources and next steps to effectively make an impact in their communities.
