This year’s OECD Forum theme is quite timely: bridging divides. And truth be told, 2017 has been a year where I have felt that distance keenly. I’m going to be taking part in a very fun event called an Idea Factory, where over the course 4 hours, a group of experts, researchers, and policy makers will try to collaboratively brain storm some solutions and initiatives around this subject.
As a researcher, I often spend most of my days buried in data or deep on the web, and so I am excited to be able to exchange ideas and have stimulating debates with other people who have been thinking about these things as well.
I’ll be updating my experience on the blog, so be sure to check back in case we manage to solve the entire issue and declare world peace. 😉
