The Council on Technology & Society, modeled on CFR, is a non-partisan community of tech leaders (e.g. venture capitalists, startup CEOs, and big co execs) who engage on issues of public consequence with stakeholders from the public arena (e.g. policy makers, journalists, and academics). CFR was started to combat American isolationism; the Council exists to combat tech isolationism. As tech grows in power and reach, we should, for the sake of both our industry and society, engage more proactively with other societal stakeholders. Tech can only achieve its maximum impact if we deeply understand the perspectives and constraints of broader society.
