COVID-19 crystalized America’s innovation imperative. MerITocracy 2022: American Innovation Forum is an event produced by MeriTalk in partnership with Hill and White House leadership as well as industry visionaries. More than a talk shop, this program will underscore the requirement for tangible outcomes and practical operational plans. MerITocracy will focus on creative thinking around critical issues that sit at the nexus of policy and technology: education and workforce, global competitiveness, security and privacy, healthcare, and citizen services.
