Program Overview

Digitally United: Closing the Gaps in a Techonomic World March 23-24 | 2-5 PM ET Daily

The world needs to come together. Tech can help in so many ways, but we need that badly. We see digital division between citizens who are connected and those who aren’t, between regulators and tech platforms, between fully-online companies and those still transforming, between countries committed to openness and those determined to control speech, even between workers at home and those in the office. So where are the solutions? And how do we better-knit society together, both in the U.S. and globally? (2-5 PM ET Daily)

Some planned sessions for Digitally United:

  • How are businesses, citizens, and governments doing towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for 2030?
