From setting tribal priorities, to building infrastructure, to managing and sustaining projects, the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) presents an unprecedented opportunity for the 574 federally recognized tribal nations to use their rights of sovereignty and self-government to strengthen their communities. As the tribes take on the challenges presented by the Act, the Ash Center’s Harvard Project on American Indian Economic Development is hosting a series designed to assist tribes, to help tribes learn from each other and from a wide array of guest experts.
Harvard Kennedy School students and recent graduates are invited to join the Ash Center for a virtual networking session featuring HKS alumni with experience working in the field of digital government. During this session, participants will briefly hear from alumni and then have a majority of the time to introduce themselves and ask questions in a series of breakout sessions with each panelist.
Featured alumni will include:
