Metro21 Executive Director Talks Infrastructure at CES 2023

Metro21 Executive Director Karen Lightman participated in a panel at CES 2023 for the session "Smart Infrastructure: Building the Future" on Friday, January 6, 2023 in Las Vegas, NV.

The panel discussed how planners are using sensors, data, analytics, and adaptability to create technological systems that will improve the day-to-day lives of citizens.

"The world is becoming automated and electrified and it's going to be really critical that as that world is developing, we think about Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging, and that we make sure that the tide is rising for all boats, and there are opportunities in that as well.  Electrification and automation - it's happening, get on board."  - Karen Lightman
