Technology for Change Asia

Economist Impact’s third annual Technology for Change Asia will gather leaders across the public, private and civil sectors to examine how technology-based and data-driven solutions can be applied to long-standing social challenges to connect with the consumer and stakeholders of today. Gain practical learnings from an expert speaker faculty and add your voice to the discussion at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore and online.

There has never been a more urgent need to foster financial inclusion and promote prosperity through closing the digital divide for the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Stakeholders and consumers today expect businesses to deliver positive social outcomes as well as financial returns. As we harness technology to solve society’s greatest challenges and threats affecting the global community, the necessity for sustainable, accessible, and ethical solutions has never been greater.

How can innovators, technology platforms, impact and government leaders move from hype to help? How do we foster diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) through technology? What are the human capital challenges and opportunities that pioneers need to be aware of to plug the gaps and stay ahead of the curve? How can we maximise the opportunities and mitigate risk around the move towards decentralisation and an increasingly hyper-connected world?
