Responsible Technology: A roadmap for ethical and sustainable innovation

Are you interested in using technology in a more responsible and sustainable way? Responsible Technology is more than just a buzzword; it's becoming increasingly important for organizations to create a fairer, more sustainable, and inclusive world. 


In the talk “The State of Responsible Technology”, we discussed and explored Responsible Tech practices for your business and culture, making this an intrinsic part of your organization's DNA.


Strategies for Responsible Technology are on the rise in the boardroom. This is evident from the MIT Technology Review Insights report. Almost three-quarters of the organizations worldwide believe that Responsible Technology will eventually become just as important as traditional business and financial considerations when using technology.


But... Adopting and building a Responsible Technology strategy can be a complex task. Are you grappling with diverse user requirements, software risks, and data systems? 


The talk can help you start. Experience first-hand from leaders in responsible tech how applying tools help teams to create more responsible and ethical solutions.

Featuring a Q&A with Thoughtworks CTO Dr. Rebecca Parsons, this talk offers you the insights and practical steps to help you build awareness, take action, and ask the tough questions essential for implementing responsible technology.
