PLANO, Texas, Sept. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Huawei Technologies USA's SVP of Public Affairs, Joy Tan, will join The Information's 2020 WTF Summit to lead a breakout session. Hosted virtually on September 9-10, The Information's WTF Summit is an intimate summit for women from the tech, media and finance industries that provides attendees with the opportunity to learn from one another and build connections between New York and Silicon Valley. Tan will join a group of high-powered female speakers who will lead discussions around driving global innovation and social change during unprecedented times. Speakers include, Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook, and founder of Leanin.org and OptionB.org, Maria Renz, EVP and Group Business Unit Leader at SoFi and former VP of Global Delivery Experience for Amazon, Linda Yaccarino, Chairman of Advertising & Client Partnerships for NBCUniversal, and Laurene Powell Jobs, Founder of Emerson Collective, among others.
The breakout session, titled, "The Tech Reset: The tension between the tech industry and government," will take place on Thursday, September 10 at 1:45 p.m. ET. The discussion will focus on how technology companies and governments can work together to establish standards, best practices and regulations that benefit everyone. Over the past few years, everything from ride sharing and social media to 5G and AI has been closely scrutinized, breeding increasing tension between the technology industry and governments. Geopolitical conflicts have only exacerbated these tensions, which have destabilized the global supply chain and impacted tens of thousands of workers and their families. As a result, we're headed towards a tech reset, which provides a significant opportunity for technology companies and governments to collaborate on effective policies. Together, this can bring out the best of what the technology industry has to offer: breakthrough innovation, good paying jobs, and solutions to some of the most challenging problems.
