Willard InterContinental Hotel
A workshop focused on discussing and explaining social media and open government legal and policy issues for
Legal Counsel, Ethics, Privacy Officers and Policy Analysts as well as Social Media, Communications and Public Affairs Officers who want to understand the legal aspects of social media use .
Legal counsel, privacy and ethics officers are faced with complex, cross-functional issues when providing opinions and input on social media and open government policies and initiatives. The nexus of technology and public interaction through social media and open government efforts challenges the best advisors to find ways to allow more engagement and access to accomplish the President's Open Government goals and to allow their agencies to fulfill the requirements of the Open Government Directive.
This workshop will help legal counsel, privacy and ethics officers understand the core technology issues at a basic level, understand how other agencies are enabling social media and open government policies to move forward quickly and how to transform their roles to be enablers of policy change in the areas of social media and open government.
