How Technology Teams Can Support Sustainable Development Goals and Be Champions for Change!

2030 is the “Decade of Delivery” to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals – yet the gap between where we are, and where we need to be is significant. A new report shows that 4th Industrial Revolution technology can play a major role in bridging this gap, but new responsibilities and partnerships will be necessary to move beyond technological enthusiasm. Join Jennifer Bonine to learn how the Fourth Industrial Revolution Tech Can Fast Track 70% of Sustainable Development Goals. Jennifer will discuss use cases of emerging technologies, including AI, which were analyzed to build the case for how 4th Industrial Revolution technologies could do more to speed up progress towards the Global Objectives. As we enter a new decade and 2030 appears on the horizon, the world as we know it is at a crucial point in time. Faced with unparalleled challenges including increasing social inequity and the unintended consequences of rapid-paced technological disruption, there has never been a more urgent moment for collaborative, progressive action from global leaders. As the first step in guiding and supporting a new leadership model. Jennifer will share the model for teams to take back and implement in their organizations to affect positive change. To influence leading responsibly in 2020 and beyond.
