Hacking the System: Disrupting Tech’s Status Quo

March 17

The focus of this session is an interactive dialogue by three global leaders from the NGO, public, and private sectors discussing the current corporate paradigm of thinking in today’s technology workplace setting in the U.S. and beyond. Addressing topics around future of work, re-skilling/up-skilling, the impact of rapid technology changes, and inclusion, answers will be sought on how to enact change and cultivate an environment that embraces risk-taking, diverse thinking, and innovative solutions to enable an organization’s growth. This discussion includes an examination of what best practices work in each environment from policy implementation to playbooks to experimental pilots that help piecemeal adaptation to a changing work environment over time.
