Introducing The Assembly: an event for changemakers who want to use technology to shape the future

The maxim of technology has long been ‘to make the world a better place’ – and yet, the future seems more uncertain than ever.

From fake news to the ethics of artificial intelligence and the gig economy, technology has played its part in bringing us to a crossroads in humanity. We’re facing some of the biggest social, political and philosophical decisions we need to make before we stroll into an era of history where we no longer control our own fate.

These decisions will be confronted at The Assembly – an invite-only gathering taking place during TNW Conference 2017, and composed of the greatest architects of technology, global captains of industry, and the international community’s leading policy-makers.

Co-hosted by Pluralsight and consisting of a carefully vetted guestlist of tech leaders and policy makers, The Assembly will bring together content sessions and networking in an attempt to nurture the sort of discussions that are necessary to start taking action. Any C-level decision maker, or political, creative or technical expert can request an invite, and we’ll handpick 250 changemakers that can make a real difference.

Content at the assembly will include everything from Europe’s struggle with policy approaches to balancing the power of tech companies, privacy security and competition, to inclusivity, diversity and addressing the education and skills gap in the tech industry.

Think you’re the right fit for The Assembly? You can request your invite here! Applicants will hear if they’re selected in the next two weeks.
