The School of Public Policy’s leadership series spotlighting professionals with careers in public policy will feature Tim Powderly from Apple on Wednesday, February 8 at 11:30 a.m. EST.
Powderly has almost twenty years of experience working at the intersection of public policy and the technology industry. For more than eleven years, he has worked on a broad array of policy issues, including immigration, intellectual property, broadband deployment, tax, competition, workforce training and education, and data privacy and cybersecurity at Apple. Now Apple’s senior director of government affairs for the Americas, Powderly is responsible for managing Apple’s public policy advocacy throughout the region.
Before joining Apple, Powderly served four years as senior counsel to the House of Representatives’ Subcommittee on Telecommunications and the Internet, where he advised members of Congress on a variety of telecommunications, accessibility, and media issues. He spent two years as a litigation attorney at Sidley Austin LLP in Chicago, Illinois, and five years in a public policy role at Covad Communications, a small broadband provider.
Powderly will join the “Policy Profiles” series to discuss his experience in public policy and the technology industry. He’ll also take questions from attendees.
