Amanda Mackenzie, Chief Executive, at Business In The Community will chair a panel discussion, which will focus on how we can create an inclusive digital world.
Digital transformation is providing a significant opportunity to drive growth and prosperity for the betterment of both business and citizens. It also offers the chance to reduce poverty and inequalities, improve livelihoods and enable us to better manage growth on a finite planet.
However, this digital transformation also presents challenges to society. Some forecasts suggest that as many as ten million jobs (35 per cent of today’s UK workforce) could be lost due to automation by 2035 alone. And the negative impacts of reduced face-to-face interactions and hyper-connectivity are only just starting to be understood.
Amanda will be joined by senior business leaders to discuss the role of responsible businesses in this digital era. They will discuss how we can work together to benefit fully from the opportunities provided by digital transformation.
