Tech-Driven Dilemmas in Business: Creating a Dilemma Library for Learning

Welcome to the

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. 

The Challenge

Responsible Banking

How might we enable companies everywhere to use technology and data responsibly to build trust in ways that:


the interests, privacy, and rights of those whose data is being collected and used, and are mindful of impact and purpose


the flexibility required to comply with local regulations, laws, and cultural expectations


rather than constrain, innovation that benefits individuals, businesses, society, and future generations;

so that adoption of responsible digital leadership models, principles, and practices is seen as a must do—rather than a nice to do—by those organizations around the world to support a level playing field.
our initiative

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.

We hope this will contribute to improve international collaboration that benefits many.

Our Offer

We offer the solutions to anyone and we hope to raise the bar for responsible tech in the financial sector and elsewhere. The solutions are intended to be available as flexible tools also for smaller organizations that lack the muscle to build their own.

Our aim

We aim to integrate ethics along with considerations for human rights and sustain- able efforts in our work with corporate digital responsibility. Finally, we intend to offer the solutions and learnings to NGO’s and others who manage large amounts of data in their quest to do good.
