A work of art to contemplate

For your consideration:

“Man is a Religious Animal. He is the only Religious Animal. He is the only animal that has the True Religion — several of them. He is the only animal that loves his neighbor as himself and cuts his throat if his theology isn’t straight.”
Mark Twain


“He who can no longer stand in awe is as good as dead.”
Albert Einstein

Leadership in a Multiracial World– How do we makes things a LOT better?
Pre-Readings
Nely Galán
We have issues of social justice, financial inequity and inclusion. The narrative in the U.S. is often black and white, yet in a multicultural country we lack knowledge about each other, our histories, traumas and politics. Morgan Stanley argues that multiculturalism is one of America’s competitive advantages, yet corporate America and their boards don’t look like us.

The Digital Social Contract: How to Bring Society Together in a Big Tech Era
Pre-Readings
Marjorie Paillon
(Host & Speaker)
In a galaxy not so far away, social media used to be a weapon of mass disruption. Users used to treasure their devices and praise technology. Entrepreneurs used to innovate for the sake of innovation.

The tech fairy dust doesn’t fool us anymore. Users have turned into citizens calling for answers. Data consciousness is the new black. The fight against ‘Big Tech’ casts tech platforms like villains from Marvel comics.

Can we reboot the social contract? How can tech bring more solutions than problems. Are we at a turning point between digital elites, the tech workforce… and everyone else?
