Announcing the Second Policy Hackers Cohort

September 1, 2021

We’re excited announce Lincoln Network’s second cohort of Policy Hackers–10 tech professionals from around the country passionate about helping bridge the gap between innovators and policymakers.

Fellows will remain in their current roles while engaging with policy experts, lobbyists, academics, and government officials throughout the year-long program. The programming is aimed at helping fellows build the skills to navigate and engage effectively in the policy arena, while developing a principled framework for thinking about the regulation of emerging technologies.

The program will kick off with a summit in Washington, DC on September 15-17. This event will feature sessions with leading policy scholars, meetings with government officials, and social events. All in-person events will follow city and CDC guidelines for COVID-19 safety, including masking and social distancing. Learn more about the program at

We'd like to thank the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, as well as other Lincoln donors, for making the second year of this program possible.
