From population growth to rapid urbanization, cities are facing new challenges to maintaining high standards of livability, resiliency and sustainability. Victoria Dower and the Smart Communities team are identifying and delivering solutions.

“Faster commutes, fewer emissions and safer streets are just some of the experiences we’re enabling,” Victoria explains. Connected machines, sensors and digital kiosks collect data that cities can use to manage resources more efficiently and provide services that attract more businesses, residents and workers.

“I’m passionate about seeing technology improve the urban experience. So I’m focused on engaging key players—like city governments, entrepreneurs and industry veterans—on how we can help them better engage with citizens,” shares Victoria.

In the end, “seeing our work come to life is amazing,” she shares. “I love working on things that make a difference for my friends and family, and communities around the country.” View the video to learn more about how Victoria and team are building the future.
