Event summary

Join Cooley for a virtual fireside chat with FCC Commissioner Geoffrey Starks and former FCC Commissioner Robert McDowell, Cooley partner and co-leader of its global communications practice, who will discuss current business and public policy issues affecting all aspects of the telecommunications, media and technology sectors.

Commissioner Geoffrey Starks believes that communications technology has the potential to be one of the most powerful forces on Earth for promoting equality and opportunity. To unlock that potential, however, all Americans must have access. From combatting internet inequality to advocating for diversity in employment, entrepreneurship, and media ownership, Commissioner Starks fights for policies designed to ensure that modern communications technology empowers every American. Before he was appointed Commissioner, Starks helped lead the FCC’s Enforcement Bureau, handling a wide variety of complex investigations, as well as served as a senior advisor to the Deputy Attorney General at the Department of Justice on a variety of domestic and international law enforcement matters.

The Commissioner will discuss a variety of topics that directly affect the tech, media and telecom sectors.
