SESSION THREE | LEADERSHIP TRACK
2:30 - 3:15pm
DIVERSITY, EQUITY + INCLUSION
In the wake of major social and political changes over the past decades, leading companies are taking steps to increase diversity, equity, and inclusion.
We all know the “why”. Research shows the benefits of diverse and inclusive teams.
The “how” is more complicated. Equitable access to technology has an impact across the lifespan of an individual. In technology, it’s not only about the progressive decline of slow starters, but also about the widening gap between slow starters and fast starters. How do we ensure an individual gets off to a fast start?
In this fireside chat, the discussion will go beyond the current issues. Beyond broadband. With an aspirational view we will speak to the possibilities and ask the question - “How are we using technology to uplift people?”

A DAY IN THE SENTIENT WORLD OF 2030
“Wake up, Matthew. Wake UP, Matthew. No really, WAKE UP, Matthew!” The familiar sound ringing in my ears each morning greets me as I attempt to rise. The reality is that this is far better than the wet hand towel my father used to wield to get me up for school when I was a kid. My, how times have changed. First, the wet sting of a towel, then an alarm clock, and, now, my Personal Companion (PC) 2030 life system that I named Sammy after my childhood dog.
Join us as Richard Sear, leader of the Visionary Innovation and Technology practice at Frost & Sullivan shares with us A Day in the Sentient World of 2030, an informed perspective on what our technology infused world will look like in just a few short years.
SESSION THREE | STRATEGY TRACK
2:30 - 3:15pm
In a digital-first world, trust is an essential strategic asset. Users and business partners alike share more data with organizations that they trust. Organizations that lose trust, lose access to data and so become less competitive.
To build and sustain trust, organizations need to do more than comply with privacy laws. They need to handle data ethically. But what, exactly, does this mean? Where are the ethical lines that an organization should not cross? How does an organization make sure that it does not step over these lines? How can organizations build ethics into their data science development process? The emerging field of data ethics seeks to answer these and related questions.
This panel will discuss data ethics from the legal, managerial and technological perspectives. Attendees will take away actionable insights into how they can improve their own organizations’ data ethics performance.
