On Thursday, Rep. Barbara Lee joined political commentator Angela Rye for a panel discussion at the annual Push Tech 2020 Conference at Google headquarters in Mountain View, CA.

They discussed diversity in tech, the role of social media and disinformation in the 2016 and 2020 elections, and data and privacy issues. Rep. Lee is a co-founder and co-chair of the Congressional Black Caucus’ CBC Tech 2020 initiative, which focuses on diversity in tech.

On the panel, Rep. Lee highlighted the need for tech companies to increase diversity at all levels of their workforce and the impact of the expansion of big tech on gentrification and income inequality in Oakland and the Bay Area.
