Beyond Coding: Career Options in the Tech Community
Microsoft Innovation & Policy Center, 901 K Street, 11th Floor, Washington, D.C.
Apr 04, 2017

In 2015, the U.S. House of Representatives created the Congressional App Challenge as a way to engage high school students from across the country in coding and computer science. Interest in the Congressional Challenge has since exceeded all expectations with more than 2,100 students from across 123 congressional districts submitting a total of 650 new apps in this year's competition. These apps reflect the creativity, ingenuity and talent of participating students, many of whom will be among tomorrow's STEM workforce.   

The Congressional App Challenge is an excellent way to begin addressing a much greater challenge - the fact that there are over a half million computer jobs currently unfilled in the U.S., nearly half of which are related to software development and have an average salary of over $100,000 a year. This gap is expected to continue to grow in the coming years as more and more jobs, from medicine to law to banking, require these skills in order to be competitive.  

This panel will reflect on how the Congressional App Challenge can continue to raise awareness around coding and computer science as well as highlight how skills gained from participants can open the door to a wide range of other occupations and opportunities in which students may grow and contribute in their communities and across the globe.

Panelists include:
  • Congresswoman Suzan DelBene (WA-01) – Member, House Ways and Means Committee and House Budget Committee; Co-Chair, Women's High Tech Caucus; Member, Internet of Things Caucus
  • Rachel Bittner – Music Informatics Engineer, Spotify
  • Matthew Lockwood – Founder and CEO, LEGEND Digital + Communications
  • Clara Tsao – Presidential Innovation Fellow, White House

9:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. (EDT) 

Light refreshments will be provided. Follow the discussion on Twitter at #HouseOfCode. RSVP here

Planning for the Future: A Conference About Identity Theft
Constitution Center, 400 7th Street SW, Washington, D.C.
May 24, 2017
Join the Federal Trade Commission for an all-day conference taking a comprehensive look at how identity theft has evolved over the last decade and what we can do to address this challenge in the future.

The unauthorized disclosure of personal information can result in identity theft and other frauds. Data breaches, lost equipment, and insiders have made sensitive consumer information available for identity thieves to use in a variety of ways. Because consumers often reuse their usernames and passwords, identity thieves with access to this information may have access to additional consumer accounts. Identity thieves are using the information they obtain to perpetrate fraud against consumers, businesses and the government; obtain employment and medical care; and hide from law enforcement.

Identity theft can have ramifications beyond financial harm. For example, consumers may be denied access to crucial services or medical care. Identity theft can also pose a threat to public safety, particularly when used to create fraudulent identity documents that facilitate criminal activity or enable individuals to hide from law enforcement.

The conference will gather input from academics, business and industry representatives, government experts and consumer advocates. We’ll look at the current state of identity theft, examine potential future challenges and discuss how to address these issues. 

The event is free and open to the public. The conference will also be available online via webcast. Learn more and register here
