Why attend?

FWD50 asks one fundamental question: How do we use technology to make society better for all?

Since 2017, public servants, innovators, academics, and civic organizers from over 30 countries have gathered to craft a response.

For those working for change

FWD50 is a chance to know they aren’t alone, and to learn new skills and technologies they can put to work immediately.

For our industry partners

FWD50 delivers a trusted platform for their executives, breakouts to showcase their innovation, and workshops where they demonstrate real value to public servants.
