Tech+Society Conference 2021 Day 1
October 28 @ 5:00 pm - 6:45 pm
These are fascinating times – tech-based innovation offers the promise of disruptive technologies which can lower cost and improve outcomes in critical areas of societal focus. The innovations and the businesses that drive them, however, are often subject to a rapidly emerging “techlash” with a growing set of concerns about potential monopolistic behavior of large tech companies, concerns about data privacy, systemic bias embedded in algorithmic decision making, a growing digital and income divide, and uncertainty about the future of work. At the core of this, a discussion around effective leadership is emerging.
Join us for the Tech + Society Conference, where we will discuss:
- Where can tech-based innovation serve society the best?
- What are potential unintended consequences of technology and how can they be mitigated?
- Ultimately, what does success look like for leaders managing tech-based innovation in society?
