Owings has been served on the leadership team for the ongoing review of whether Big Tech platforms bought their way up to monopoly and whether antitrust oversight needs to pivot to capture the speed at which Big Tech can capture market share. She received the Attorney General’s Award for Distinguished Service in 2019.
