This morning President Obama will meet with an all-star team of 15 tech company executives to discuss four of the most important issues facing America today. The team includes 10 past or present CEOs (including Yahoo boss Marissa Mayer), 3 top corporate lawyers, and Facebook’s (FB) Sheryl Sandberg who is officially Facebook’s COO but transcends org chart ranking.
Per a background memo released by the White House on Monday, the top item on the agenda is a discussion of ways the government can use IT to improve the efficiency and customer service levels of HealthCare.gov. The meeting will also address the economic impact of unauthorized intelligence disclosures (with a federal judge’s smackdown of NSA snooping still fresh in the news), and ways the Administration can partner with the tech sector to accelerate economic growth and create jobs. Finally the President will get input regarding America’s growing income inequality and social mobility.
