Digital Transformation in the Legislative Branch: Interview with Mark Stodder and Luís Kimaid
Xcential recently partnered with Bússola Tech to organize a discussion between U.S. Representative Jim McGovern and Brazilian Senator Antônio Anastasia. Both spoke on their country's needs, challenges faced during the pandemic, and how technology has enabled legislatures to continue to work properly during these challenging times.
“We need to find ways to keep the government running and responsive to constituents in good times and bad. Technology gave us the opportunity to continue to operate in the middle of this pandemic,” said Rep. McGovern. “It has also provided a way to ensure transparency and allow people to remain in touch with their elected officials.”
“With the use of technology, congress is much more open, much more democratic, much more participatory,” Senator Anastasia agreed, “Which is very good, so that we can get it right, clearly identify the various trends in society, and make decisions in the most just and convergent way possible.”
In the conversation linked below, Xcential President Mark Stodder and Bússola Tech CEO Luís Kimaid add further context to the discussion of digital transformation in legislative processes.
