— Empowerment in & through Tech —
Camille is passionate about empowering others in and through tech. Whether making technology and IP issues accessible to entrepreneurs and the less than technically savvy, promoting STEAM education, or making the tech space inclusive of all education, ethnic, sex, geographic and professional backgrounds, Camille believes tech should be an interdisciplinary field where a variety of perspectives come together to promote innovation. She also strives to help create the most inclusive version of the cybersecurity, national security, and foreign policy spaces by empowering and amplifying diverse voices to improve and enhance the general discourse/decision-making and ensure all demographics are accounts for as decisions are made.
“One of the most important reasons to promote STEM education is it will elevate the public understanding of how science, technology, and innovation affect our lives. This will create a better-informed public empowered with an understanding of the increasingly technical law and policy questions we face daily. We need a citizenry with enough understanding of the issues to dictate where we should draw lines as a society on tough issues like cybersecurity and privacy. Exposure to STEM throughout schooling creates informed citizens in an increasingly science and tech driven world.” - Camille
