Special Address on Breaking Your Inner Boundaries; Excellence through Self Actualization
Studies have shown that men are bold to take up new challenges even while 50% ready but women shy away from opportunities even while 80% ready. The focus of this topic is on how women can overcome inertia, stop being their greatest obstacle, show boldness and break away from perceived limiting factors thereby advancing their careers, start-up new business and utilize their potential for self-fulfillment.
The popular belief and understanding for majority of people is that digitalization will lead to job cuts. This notion leads to lots of anxiety and trepidation thereby making a lot of people oblivious of the latent advantages.
a) How can one convert this perceived threat to viable opportunities and thus get properly positioned for the future?b) How can one utilize the current digitalization trend for economic gains and progress not just entertainment?
Gender inequality has been a burning issue worldwide and concerted efforts have been on-going to strike a balance between both genders even in developed countries. Will the emergence of Artificial Intelligence be the key to unlocking this inequality and closing the existing gap? Are there ways that Artificial Intelligence can be utilized to achieve this?
