GSA Announces New Batch of Presidential Innovation Fellows

The General Services Administration has revealed the members of the new batch of the Presidential Innovation Fellows, a program that aims to improve government service with the use of technology.

Announced on Tuesday, the new fellows will work to develop innovative solutions to help achieve national priorities, including reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving customer experience in health care and enhancing national nutrition initiatives.

Among the technology leaders named as new fellows are Ankita Dhussa from the Department of Agriculture, Jennifer Gardner from the Small Business Administration and Stephanie E. Farquhar from the Office of Management and Budget, the GSA said.

Administrator Robin Carnahan said that the experienced technologists and innovators entering government service will help realize better delivery of services for Americans.

In recent years, the federal government has been ensuring that the U.S. remains a global innovation leader amid concerns over China’s poaching of locally developed technologies. But Kathleen Hicks, deputy secretary of defense and a past Potomac Officers Club event speaker, believes that American ingenuity is something China could not imitate.
