Join us for an evening with Author and Filmmaker Tiffany Shlain.
"While the idea that everything is connected is not new, the world today is more complex and interdependent than ever –and we, as a species have evolved to created tools that connect us in many new ways. And yet it seems difficult for us rise above and see how the major issues of our day are interlinked. We often view the economy, healthcare, the environment, human rights independently. However, today we live in a dynamic network of cause and effect. I believe people are ready to rethink what interdependence means in the 21st Century–exploring both the good and the difficult issues this connectedness creates."
Tiffany Shlain, founder of the Webby Awards, will discuss how women leaders can harness both technology, authenticity and creativity to create a more connected world.
