People & Planet in the Information Era

Join the GSB's Leadership for Society Program this winter to explore People and Planet in the Information Era. Listen to conversations hosted by Prof. Brian Lowery with leaders from a variety of sectors on the immense opportunity and critical challenges for society presented by the rapid explosion of information in our world.

The Leadership for Society program at the Stanford Graduate School of Business will continue their speakers series in the winter of 2023 with the theme People and Planet in the Information Era

The rapid explosion of information in our world presents both immense opportunity and critical challenges for society. Instant and ubiquitous information is a powerful driver for innovation and holds the promise of technological advances that can promote prosperity, enhance human well-being, and avert our looming environmental crisis. At the same time, the distribution of data ownership and access to information have threatened important human values, redefined power, and challenged democracy. In winter of 2023, Leadership for Society Conversations will explore this topic further through a series of discussions with leaders from a variety of sectors.
