August 15, 2017. Every year South By Southwest proves that bringing together a diverse group leads to unexpected discoveries. Over 30,000 entrepreneurs, technologists, and digital leaders convene in search of fresh ideas and solutions.
For 2018, Work & Co has three panels designed to spark inspiration for companies to: build accessible and inclusive products, lead the next generation of social sharing, and use their voice to stand up on social issues. Vote to help us join the stage—voting ends on August 25th.
Digital Democracy: Building Tools for the World
Vote for Digital Democracy
Are you building your products for the entire world? An added responsibility for today’s digital designers and technologists: ensuring products load properly in low bandwidth, account for service outages, and work across device types.
Founding Partner, Marcelo Eduardo, will lead a discussion on what it takes to build digital products for all audiences alongside Anna Ly (Front End Innovation, LEGO), Jason Fournier, (Global Head of Strategy, Facebook Blueprint), and Andres Castañeda Ochoa (SVP, Marketing and E-Commerce, Aeromexico).
The Future of Sharing
Vote for Future of Sharing
9 hours. That’s how much time teenagers spend on social – a day. New behaviors continue to emerge around sharing, with live at the center of it today. How do you design a platform so engaging that people open, check, interact, and share on multiple times a day?
Founding Partner, Gene Liebel, will be joined by Ted Boda (Product Design Manager, Instagram), Tutti Taygerly (Product Design Manager, Facebook), and Rajni Lucienne Jacques, (Fashion Director, Teen Vogue). Hear from the designers behind leading social platforms as well as content creators driving engagement on what’s next in social.
Fighting Back with CSR: How Companies Are Uniting
Vote for Fighting Back with CSR
2017 has proved that companies – from Apple and IBM to Tesla and Ford – are no longer shying away from hot-button issues like immigration, climate change and women’s rights. The future of CSR is about making your values known through legal action, new revenue models, and even aligning with the competition for the greater good.
Founding Partner, Mohan Ramaswamy, will shed light on the ways CSR efforts are becoming more broadly integrated into organizations. Joining him are Kim Rubey (Global Head of Social Impact and Philanthropy, Airbnb), Kay Hsu, (Global Lead, Instagram), Paul Polizzotto (Founder and President, CBS EcoMedia Inc.), and Jessica James (Founder, Jessica James Consulting).
