City Hall News Digital Communications Series at Baruch College


At the second session of the Digital Communications series held on Friday October 14th at Baruch College and produced by City Hall News, Editor Adam Lisberg moderated a panel of distinguished experts including, NYC Council member Gale Brewer, Governmental Operations Chair; Scott Burns CEO of GovDelivery; Mark Drapeau; Microsoft’s Office of Civic Innovation and Editor of Publicyte; Sarah Kaufman MTA Digital; and NYC’s Chief Digital Officer, Rachel Sterne. The topic was: How digital tools are (and are not) impacting communications in and around government? There were many great insights and examples of how new communications have helped more people deal with government and receive services, but some of the difficulties faced included the “digital divide” issue for those who don’t have access to computers and hi speed internet connections.
