While completing their MBAs at the Yale School of Management, Vivian Chong and Joshua Lam were discouraged by the lack of community and resources for business students interested in the ethical implications of technology. In light of this, they developed the Tech & Society MBAs Initiative to prepare MBAs for a more responsible tech future by raising awareness, creating resources, and building community around issues at the intersection of tech & society. They see their efforts as a step towards promoting ethical thinking and practices among MBAs entering the tech industry. This talk will share why they built a tech ethics initiative specific for MBAs, what the initiative has accomplished and learned thus far, and what they hope to accomplish in the future with support from the TrustCon community.
Lightning talks are 5-7 minute talks grouped with other 5-7 minute talks across a 50 minute session. There will be time for Q&A after all of the lightning talks in a session.
