Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales and Cambridge Analytica whistle-blower Christopher Wylie are our featured speakers at the second edition of virtual event Gen.T Stream

The global pandemic has raised important questions about the way we live and work with others. A recent study from Credit Suisse reveals that the top global concerns, aside from the coronavirus, include financial and political corruption, poverty and social inequality, and healthcare and unemployment. But in the midst of adversity there is always opportunity. In this case, it’s to ask ourselves how we can create a better and more equitable future for ourselves and those around us.
