There is a $21 billion (and growing) market for digital identity technology. This fireside chat will focus on ways to encourage investments and inclusive designs in digital identification that build economic advancement.
Today’s digital identity is far more complex than inputting a password. With the rise of biometric data, the Metaverse, and growing snapshots of a person’s online behavior, the ecosystem of personal identity platforms is rapidly developing. This fireside chat will focus on the ability to democratize personal identity technology to enable learning, accessible communication, and skills-based marketplaces. Sharon Leu, an Executive in Residence at JFF, will lead a discussion on how digital technology policies can be used for upward mobility.
This session will discuss: (1) the state of digital identity technology and policy; (2) how greater access, control, and privacy can empower people and provide greater access to economic advancement; and (3) other factors, such as social and community networks, that will enable a skills-based talent marketplace to be truly equitable.
