TECH AS A FORCE FOR GOOD

TUESDAY 6TH JULY, 9:00AM

Roy L. Austin, Jr. is Facebook’s VP of Civil Rights and Deputy General Counsel, a role that is the first of its kind in the tech industry and one that is incredibly important for Facebook, joins us to talk about how tech can be a force for good, embracing tech not fearing it,  using tech responsibly.

In the discussion about Tech Companies possibly becoming too large and dominant, how can these companies continue to be forces for good. Part of this is the application of the technology and the other part is how the company itself can use its corporate power and market share to promote positive societal development and change. Where are the boundaries between being an agent of change and creating a marketplace for ideas and information to be exchanged and contend?

Through slow on the uptake, in the years to come, we can expect a number of governments to increase spending on digital transformation.  Many governments already feel the pressure to modernize.  Regardless of how quickly or slowly governments adapt, the future is clear - tomorrow's citizens expect modern digital first approaches to services.

A country's human resource is its most vital asset. However, if there is a mismatch between skills and HR capacity and the needs of competitive

industry, development will, at the very least, be lopsided and unsustainable.

A proper understanding of the likely industries of the future and the skills that would power them is needed to ensure competitiveness.

IF done properly, this should also result in opportunities and mobility for all in society.
