Are We Building Products that are Ruining the World?

Technologists are in an unprecedented position to create experiences that impact how society interacts with every facet of our world. We are grappling with the simultaneous ubiquity of technology and decreasing trust that it is in our best interests.  In this session, Substantial CEO, Carey Jenkins, discusses whether or not we’re building products that are ruining the world. Join us as she shares her perspective on how the intersection of ethics and technology leads to the development of more compelling products and more conscious innovation cultures, with first-hand experience of the ethical responsibility product leaders have and the means to create more intentionally.
