Andrew Foxwell: How Technology Can Improve Political Dialogue
November 14th Andrew Foxwell will be coming to campus for a luncheon discussion regarding the impact of technological advances on dialogue.
Andrew Foxwell is the Marketing and New Media Director for iConstituent, a Washington D.C.-based company that works with over half of the United States Congress, focusing on improved online strategy, outreach, and advocacy to constituents. Prior to working with iConstituent, Foxwell was the Press Secretary and New Media Director to U.S. Congressman Erik Paulsen from Minnesota’s Third Congressional District. In that role, Foxwell helped the Congressman become one of only two freshmen members in the 111th Congress to receive the Golden Mouse Award, an honor bestowed to winners of an annual competition of the best websites on Capitol Hill. Foxwell has also worked on U.S. Presidential campaigns, spoke at the Personal Democracy Forum in 2011, was a 2010 German Marshall Fund Manfred Worner Defense Fellow, and currently sits on the St. Olaf College Board of Regents. Foxwell spent his youth on a Wisconsin farm and still has no idea how he got into the fast-paced world of technology and politics.
