What We Do

The National Digital Roundtable is the premier convener of digital innovators, leaders and policy shapers. Our mission is to educate and inform professionals in a variety of fields and disciplines about the technology, trends and tactics that are transforming how society interacts with the world around them.

We regularly convene off-the-record private roundtable events that are not public or posted on our event page. Our forums and larger events are open to the public.

NDR Public Forums attract 100 or more professionals for panel discussions related to trending topics in digital policy and practice. Events are open to the ticketed public and have been hosted at universities, the Newseum and embassies. Many are recorded.
