Part of the 2020-21 Speaker Series presented by the UWO Electro-Governance Group

If there's one thing that the COVID pandemic response should have taught us, it's the role of leadership in the effectiveness of the response. The successes and failures of institutional public health response largely come down to the roles of limitation and governance - not just of a public health response, but specifically in the failed rollout of contact tracing (and exposure notification) apps.

Sean McDonald designs technology for governance and governance for technology. He is the CEO of FrontlineSMS, an award-winning technology company, and the cofounder of Digital Public, a public interest digital governance firm. Sean is a Senior Fellow at the Center for International Governance Innovation, a lawyer barred in New York, and a digital rights activist. He holds a JD/MA from American University.
