Project on Responsible Digital Leadership
Throughout 2021, the Project on Responsible Digital Leadership will analyze the many risks and ethical dilemmas related to the use of new technologies in banking and insurance.
In what is presumably the largest global project of its kind to date, around 70 Ph.D., MBA, and master’s-level students from some of the world’s most renowned universities in 26 countries across Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, and South America will come together to bring their diverse cultural and disciplinary lens’ to this important work.
With this intentionally diverse global effort, we will define the risks of technology use, with a mission of future-proofing the financial sector against getting the ethics of data and AI wrong. In doing so, we seek to set in motion a global, culturally-conscience, ethically-trained emerging workforce that has the potential to influence responsible technological innovation worldwide, for generations to come.
When complete, we will have developed a culturally inclusive learning platform based on collections of real ethical dilemmas in tech, which will provide a strong foundation for promoting a culture of thoughtful technology implementation and responsible leadership.
Responsible Digital Leadership
We’ve launched this project as we have to realize and understand an increasing number of ethical dilemmas and possible digital human rights infringements in our common digital horizon.
Questions to which we need to find answers enabling actors in the financial sector – and elsewhere – to benefit from the powers of data and algorithmic tools without risking their reputation, and more importantly without bringing privacy and fundamental rights of their customers at risk.
Through our work we’ve increasingly been made aware of the importance of culture and education in promoting understanding of risks and basic values throughout business operations. This is what we aim to contribute to; by developing a learning platform based on collections of real ethical dilemmas of tech.
