Tech and Society Breakfast
Learn. Discuss. Reflect.
We believe technology can have tremendous positive impacts on society. In order to achieve this goal, we need to understand these possible impacts and align the interests of companies, individuals and society as a whole.
We are convinced that thoughtful conversations are key to realizing these goals. Our aim is to empower founders and tech leaders to identify, address, and solve ethical challenges that arise when introducing technology into society.
Meet forward-thinking keynote speakers and connect with influential attendees.
Join us in creating these conversations.
"How to Reshape Tech Through Diversity?"
Diversity is one of the biggest challenges facing the tech industry today. In Switzerland, women are still a minority in management and on executive boards. Besides, the vast majority of employees within tech companies are either male or white.
Neglecting diversity brings various ethical risks. Unintentionally, non-diverse teams will create non-diverse technology that is ill-adapted to different consumer groups.
How can a more inclusive team offer viewpoints and insights that reduce harmful behaviors for individuals, businesses, and society at large? And how can diversity be used as a competitive advantage?
