Mayer Brown partner Raj De joined Aspen Institute’s new Council for a Fair Data Future, aimed at “creating an equitable data economy that works for everyone,” according to the nonprofit.
Comprised of 30 experts, advocates and practitioners, the Council will “debate, deliberate, and collaborate on what is needed to create changes to systems and markets, and propose ways to infuse fairness and equitable benefits across institutions, technologies, policies, and social and economic frameworks,” according to the Institute. Its work will culminate in recommendations for collective action, to be distributed to changemakers in this space.
After nearly two decades in private practice and public service across all three branches of the United States government, Raj is one of the most trusted voices in Washington. Raj is a member of Mayer Brown’s global Management Committee. He leads the firm’s National Security and Cybersecurity & Data Privacy practices, and is a member of the firm’s Congressional Investigations & Crisis Management team. Raj holds various roles that build upon his Washington legal and policy experience, including serving as a member of the Aspen Homeland Security Group.
