2019 Digital Empowers Summit

Event Date: 
Friday, May 10, 2019 - 8:30am to 5:15pm

Join the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation and Tata Consultancy Services on May 10, 2019 for the second annual Digital Empowers: Accelerating Innovation for Business and Social Good Summit. This event will bring together business leaders, technical experts, and government and community partners that are shaping the future of innovation and social impact.

Digital innovations and emerging technologies, networks, and services are transforming society—from the way companies do business and engage their value chains to the way governments and nonprofits reach and empower communities. Our connection to the intelligent world is not only growing, but getting stronger. Harnessing technology is imperative to sustainable progress; and yet, only together, can we realize its full potential.

The Digital Empowers Summit will increase the understanding of innovations, such as blockchain, data analytics, virtual simulations, IoT, and AI, as well as bring greater awareness to how organizations of all sizes are leveraging their capabilities to reshape entire industries and compound social impact within communities around the world.

The Digital Empowers program will explore how the private, public and nonprofit sectors are using technology to address a number of issues:

  • Future of work
  • Health, wellness, and accessibility
  • Supply chain diversity and ethics
  • Smart cities
  • Digital citizenship
  • Entrepreneurial ecosystem

Summit attendees will have an exclusive opportunity to engage with speakers and thought leaders, diving deeper into the technical elements of next-generation technologies, best practices for cross-sector partnerships, and what shared value means—in action.
