XR, AI & 5G for a New Immersive Experience

Wednesday, 1 March | 13:15 - 14:15  | MWC Stage C, Hall 6 

Science fiction movies like Ready Player One and The Matrix have already demonstrated the immense potential of immersive technology that merges the physical and virtual world. More recently, with the breakthroughs in AR and VR combine with the global deployment of 5G, immersive technology represents the next frontier in our lives, from healthcare, entertainment to work and more.

Now the big question is, what’s next? What’s our way of work, play and interact with the digital universe in the future? What will be the evolution in device for the immersive experience? Will 5G empowered holographic communication realize its future? How does AI fit in it? What is the impact of Web 3.0 & tokenomics on immersive experiences?  Let’s see how these revolutionary technologies will offer us the best immersion ever!

Being Ambitious for DE&I in the Telecoms Industry: Aligning DE&I with Core Business and Growth Goals

Tuesday, 28 February | 10:20 a.m. | Stage A

Managing the post-pandemic paradox of change is a new marker of growth and competitive success. We now need to adapt and focus on culture, talent, and a happier, healthier workforce. Whilst many focus on digital transformation, the most forward-looking companies are integrating change with a solid foundation of embedding diversity and inclusion as the cornerstone of growth and future success.

In this business-led session, we focus on ways to apply agile thinking, digital transformation, and workforce management to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion practices.

Cisco Panelist: Kristen Nichols | SVP, Chief of Staff and COO, Cisco Networking

DE&I Accountability and Engagement at Leadership Level

Wednesday, 1 March | 9:15 a.m. | Stage A

To achieve and sustain diversity among leadership benches, organizations must adopt accountability and change, creating change in behavior and outcomes for individual leaders. The Telecoms industry is no different from others, and despite mounting external and internal pressures to prioritize and make demonstrable improvements on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), organizations continue to struggle to make real and rapid headway.  How can we make this change more seamless and embedded?
