Register for June IPNSIG Academy Keynote
Date & Time: Jun 28, 2023 7:00 AM–8:00 AM Pacific Time (US and Canada)
The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has been a key player in space communications since the beginning of the space era. ITU Secretary-General Doreen Bogdan-Martin will join Vint Cerf for a fireside chat exploring space’s potential as a driver of sustainable development. They will discuss promising opportunities in the space economy, striving for “Space for All,” and balancing space-based benefits with risk management to ensure space sustainability. Bogdan-Martin will share insights from ITU’s extensive experience managing the international treaty governing global radio-frequency spectrum and satellite orbit management.
Doreen Bogdan-Martin took office as Secretary-General of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) on 1 January 2023. Ms Bogdan-Martin has held leadership positions in the field of international telecommunications policy for over two decades, with a track-record of brokering innovative partnerships to expand digital inclusion and connectivity for everyone around the world. Following her historic election by ITU Member States in September 2022, she became the first woman ever to head the organization, which was first established in 1865 and became a UN specialized agency in 1947.
