Fair Tech Forum 2021

Fair Tech Forum 2021

During the pandemic, personal and professional life has only been possible for many people with the support of technology. However, our reliance on it means technology companies are facing renewed questions about whether they have too much control over our lives. This is all happening against a backdrop of diverging global supply chains, urgent climate change and emerging employee activism.

We want to thank all participants for joining our second online conference Fair Tech Forum. This was a week of online discussions providing a global perspective on the most important tech policy issues. From democratising connectivity to enabling purpose-driven innovation, we delved into the evolving role of technology on a range of corporate and social issues.
