This talk will focus on how Mayor Garcetti continues to drive a smarter, more connected, more livable and safer city. Los Angeles is also focused on bridging the digital divide to benefit its diverse population and foster community.
Mayor Garcetti is well known for his tech affinity, for his leadership on open data and civic innovation. While LA is famous for being the epicenter of entertainment, the city has nearly as many tech jobs as creative jobs. In addition, sectors such as tech, manufacturing and aerospace have long been innovation pioneers. Mayor Garcetti will explore these provocative issues and more with special guest, Sophia Amoruso.
