Sally Wentworth, Internet Society

Sally Shipman Wentworth joined the Internet Society in May 2009 as Senior Manager of Public Policy. In her current capacity, Ms Wentworth manages a range of policy activities for ISOC, including ISOC’s participation and advocacy on Internet policy issues within UN Organizations, primarily the ITU. Prior to joining the Internet Society, Sally Shipman Wentworth was the Assistant Director for Telecommunications and Information Policy in the Office of Science and Technology Policy at the White House from 2007-2009. There, she was responsible for government-wide coordination and implementation of policies related to Internet governance; cybersecurity; telecommunications policy; digital television transition; broadband deployment; and other information technology policies. From 1999 – 2007, Sally was the principal policy advisor on Internet policy issues at the U.S. Department of State. At the State Department, she organized U.S. delegations for several United Nations treaty conferences, and did extensive work in the ITU, OECD, and APEC. Throughout her career, Sally has been instrumental in building coalitions within the Internet community and among developed and developing countries on Internet public policy issues to promote a multi-stakeholder approach to ICT for development. Sally holds an M.A. in International Political Economy from the Claremont Graduate University (Claremont, California) and a B.A. in Political Science from Westmont College (Santa Barbara, California). Sally is based in Reston, United States.
Abstract: In 2012, the communications industry faced a watershed event at the ITU's World Conference on International Telecommunications (WCIT) in Dubai. This was a treaty conference where a number of countries sought to expand a 1988 telecommunications treaty to regulate aspects of the Internet architecture, security, operations and content. Rather than bringing the world's governments together around common principles to advance the growth of telecommunications, the conference ended with countries more divided than ever on a host of important Internet issues. So, what happened at WCIT and what can the Internet community learn from the discussions? While many of us did not believe that the treaty should extend to the Internet, it is also true that countries brought important policy issues to the table that deserve ongoing discussion and dialogue. Ms. Wentworth's talk will bring the NANOG community up-to-date on what happened at WCIT, outline some possible lessons learned, and open a discussion with NANOG about the post-WCIT policy environment and what it means for operators.
