IEC Event Hosts Jared Cohen – CEO of Jigsaw, Google – to speak on Technology, International Relations, and US politics
Last week the IEC welcomed best-selling author and former state department official, Jared Cohen, CEO of Jigsaw, Google.
Jared shared his thoughts with 70+ founding members and select guests during an epic hour plus discussion highlighting Cohen’s latest book, Accidental Presidents: Eight Men Who Changed America, a unique perspective on presidential history.
We also covered current geo-political challenges, including U.S. China relations, technology, digital currencies, and combating the vast proliferation of disinformation occurring domestically and abroad.
Given the current political landscape and growing divide, speakers like Cohen help bring valuable insights to complex issues testing our nation today, and help us make more informed decisions on where attention should be focused.
The conversation and topics covered garnered great interest among several engaged members, many of which have requested a follow-on discussion with Cohen in the coming months.
The IEC has several exciting and intellectually stimulating events planned for 2021, both virtual and in person (outdoors, socially distanced). If you’re interested in connecting with the IEC, our speakers, or want to learn more about these events, please visit iecnetwork.org.
