Who Are We

Looking Forward: Our Increasingly Digital World

In our fifth annual conference, the Sadie Collective  turns her  eyes to the future. What does a  future which centers the collective look like? How will  the growth of technology intersect with economics and inevitably  impact our future economists, policy makers , and  communities ? How can we best prepare for a rapidly changing future, and carve a seat  at the table and in some cases, create our own?
