It’s Women’s History Month and FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel is acknowledging it on her podcast Broadband Conversations, which is dedicated to amplifying the voices of women across technology, innovation, and media. Rosenworcel shared the mic with Cecilia Munoz, currently Vice President of Public Interest Technology and Local Initiatives at New America.
Munoz served for eight years on President Obama’s senior staff, first as the Director of Intergovernmental Affairs and later as the Director of the Domestic Policy Council. When she left the White House, she was the highest serving Latina.
“For me, Women’s History Month is not only about recognizing the women who have come before us and made their mark,” Rosenworcel. “It’s important to highlight women who are paving new pathways right now—like Cecilia Munoz, who has opened up government to new ideas and technologies and understands how connectivity can foster new communities and build new movements. Cecilia is a lifelong advocate for change who has dedicated her career to ensure that the next generation of dreamers and doers can do bigger and better things than we even imagine today.”
