A new mini-series
Olivia introduces Jeremy Goldberg, the Worldwide Director for Critical Infrastructure at Microsoft and explains that he’ll be hosting a miniseries for Public Sector Future, all about infrastructure.
Goldberg shared his excitement for the series: “I’ve said this many times over the last year and a half, that there’s no time like right now to be working on issues like infrastructure. And I pinch myself when I realize that I get to be a part of this work at a global level.”
Why infrastructure is important
“In the majority of nations, infrastructure has really been ignored. And it’s sometimes antiquated, often inefficient, and sometimes it’s just downright dangerous.”
Goldberg explained that physical infrastructure can be a threat to prosperity and growth.
“So, when we think about the future, we need to strengthen the core of our nations and of our cities. We must have something to do about changing and improving these weak links. We owe it to people, to business, to community, to be safe and secure for today and for future generations.”
What about digital infrastructure?
Most people probably think of physical things like roads and buildings when they hear the word “infrastructure,” but digital infrastructure is just as vital to our everyday lives.
“It’s telecom, it’s the internet, it’s all these things that connect people to the digital economy and learning and doing these things in a way that’s equitable and fair for all people,” Goldberg explained.
Who you’ll hear from
Goldberg will be sharing his conversations with city mayors, philanthropists, thought leaders from globally renowned think tanks, and more.
“Part of this [series] is really about exploring the humanity behind today’s most important infrastructure projects. So, it’s a bit of pulling back the curtain to show you not just what the most important infrastructure projects are, but more importantly how leaders are getting them done.”
The first episode of the Public Sector Future miniseries on infrastructure is available now.
