I am delighted to be hosting a roundtable on Future of Urbanization: Convergence of Digitalization and Sustainability at the upcoming “Beyond Stakeholder Capitalism” summit (Aug 12 and 13), curated by The Digital Economist, from 11:00-11:55am Eastern on Friday, August 13.
These critical and fast-paced conversations, limited to 25 participants per roundtable, will address the vital transitions necessary – and already emerging – in our energy, IT, water and other networked industries. Increasing cyber attacks on critical infrastructure have pushed cybersecurity to the top of the G7 agenda. It is becoming more and more difficult for governments, businesses and individuals to keep their data safe in today’s highly interconnected environment, with digital records on everything from bank accounts to medical information. A system-based approach to cybersecurity, encompassing the physical, digital and financial layers to hedge future risks is an urgent need of the hour.
At the summit I will be joined by guests representing:
WEF, CSIS, Accenture, Microsoft, United Nations Technology Bank for LDCs, MIT Media Lab, Gates Foundation, IBM, U.S. Department of Energy, Johnson Controls, UC Berkeley, Yale University, DTCC, Deloitte, Atos, Edelweiss Gallagher, Southern California Edison, etc. This is a gender-balanced roundtable series, ensuring diversity in backgrounds, industries, geographies and identities.
Participants’ organizations (to name a few, our private list is much longer): EY, AWS, Bloomberg, United Nations Development Programme, MIT, BNY Mellon, IBM, CitiBank, HP, Singularity University, University of Copenhagen, Women in Sustainable Innovation, etc.
The co-hosts for my roundtable will include: Alvin Ng (Johnson Controls), Reshma Singh, LEED AP, PMP (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) and Sreekanth Venkataraman (The Digital Economist & SIA Solutions)
