Make Something

Discuss the future of 3D printing with the Congressional Maker Caucus today.  The caucus is teaming up with Public Knowledge for the policy event “3D/DC,” from 9:15 a.m. to 3 p.m. in 2043 Rayburn.

Panel discussions will focus on extreme applications of 3D printing, the maker movement and the new administration, 3D printing and the future of education, women in the 3D printing industry, and 3D printing and the human body.

A reception follows at 5 p.m. at the Consumer Technology Association’s Innovation House (21 D St. SE).

The event is free to staffers and the public. RSVP here.

And the caucus just announced that Rep. Susan W. Brooks, R-Ind., is its new co-chairwoman, replacing Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C.

Japanese women in business

Keidanren, the Japan Business Federation, sent an all-female delegation to the U.S. for the first time this week. Eight female executives arrived Monday for a five-day trip, which has seen them visiting D.C. and New York to discuss the role of women in the Japanese workforce. They’ve met with prominent female leaders like Christine Lagarde, managing director of the International Monetary Fund, and female executives from Honeywell International, BlackRock, and others.
