Rachel Coldicutt, CEO of Doteveryone the responsible tech think tank, will explain how, in business, showing that you actively consider and care about the impact of the products and services you're developing on people and society is rapidly becoming one of the most important levers for growth. She will also share some of the practical tools and resources Doteveryone has developed to help businesses reconcile big ethical dilemmas with hands-on decisions.

The Speaker
Rachel Coldicutt
Rachel Coldicutt, is CEO of Doteveryone, a think tank that champions responsible technology for a fairer future. Rachel joins to talk about the work they're doing to help innovators navigate real-world dilemmas and make difficult trade-offs. Rachel has spent the last 20 years turning emerging technology into products and services, and helped many organisations adapt to the digital world. She has created and delivered large-scale content-driven services for Microsoft, BBC and Channel 4, was a pioneer in the UK digital arts sector, and has consulted for many FTSE companies across a range of sectors including finance, energy and healthcare.

Doteveryone is an independent think tank that explores how technology is changing society, shows what responsible technology can look like, and catalyses communities to shape technology to create change. Responsible technology promotes a fair, inclusive and thriving democratic society. It works in the best interests of the individual and of the public as a whole, safeguards against harm and is founded on fair and transparent value exchange between people and technology.
