About National Digital Roundtable:

The National Digital Roundtable is the premier convener of digital innovators, leaders and policy shapers. Digital technology is changing our world. Our programming focuses on trends that cut across sectors, ranging from fighting false news to augmented reality. We partner with a variety of industry groups to spark conversations that span silos and uncover solutions that we can all benefit from. Too often, foreign adversaries and conspiracy theorists have mastered these tools before the rest of us. Our work to connect and convene will combat the troublemakers and create a brighter future for us all.
