The 2021 cohort of the Innovation in Global Development PhD program at Arizona State University’s School for the Future of Innovation in Society invites you to the Development Reimagined Talk Series centered on Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) for Inclusive Development. Our focus is on how technological change functions in transforming lives on the margins of society and catalyzing new imaginaries.

The panelists include Eusebio Scornavacca, Katina Michael and Eldon Marks, who together have a wealth of experience in digital innovation, inclusion and sustainability, ICT policy, grassroots innovation and social entrepreneurship. Moving beyond typical paradigms of ICT4D related to digital literacy and technology adoption and awareness requires spotlighting other pertinent, often overlooked issues for equitable and sustainable development. Importantly, discussion is needed on the mechanisms and governance arrangements for effective deployment of ICTs in developing economies.
