Ian Axford Fellowship welcome webinar: Office of the Privacy Commissioner

In partnership with the Ian Axford Fellowships in Public Policy, IPANZ is bringing you a mini webinar series introducing you to the 2024 fellows and the work they will be doing in Aotearoa New Zealand.

These fellowships are for outstanding mid-career American professionals to research and gain first-hand experience of public policy in Aotearoa New Zealand for three to five months.

First up we are also joined by the Office of the Privacy Commissioner, who will be hosting fellow Rachel Levinson-Waldman. Rachel is the managing director of the Brennan Center's Liberty & National Security Program in America, and while in Aotearoa New Zealand she will be working in the realm of privacy, social media, and artificial intelligence.

Join us as Privacy Commissioner Michael Webster, Deputy Privacy Commissioner and IPANZ President Liz MacPherson, and Rachel discuss this interesting work! There will be opportunity to ask questions and interact with our speakers.

You can register for this event here.

“I am thrilled to join the New Zealand Office of the Privacy Commissioner, where I will have the opportunity to contribute to the office’s work on some of the most challenging issues in the realm of privacy, social media, and artificial intelligence. I have been working on these issues for years in the U.S., and I believe this exchange can be beneficial to the development of policies and norms in both countries.”
