Last week, the New York City Mayor’s Office for International Affairs held “Equity In and Through Tech: Moving from Conversation to Implementation” at the Ford Foundation in New York City. It was the official side event of the 60th United Nations Commission on the Status of Women. The event’s aim? Highlighting the importance of broadband and technology in achieving equity, specifically, gender equity within the tech space.
The event featured an inspiring lineup of speakers who work within the tech industry, as well as a series of “Mini TED-Talk” presentations by leading experts in the field. One of those experts was Starry’s SVP of Business Development and Corporate Strategy, Kristen Thiede.
Kristen led the audience in a discussion about innovations in infrastructure with respect to broadband and connectivity, and the differences between licensed and unlicensed spectrum. To hear her full speech, play the video below beginning at minute 26.
