Lynn Erasmus, Founder of SYMBL CIC and organiser said:


“We often see conferences and departments who leads in AI/Tech, and then a separate event for Sustainability and the Green Economy, and the same with Inclusion and Diversity, yet seldom do these very diverse industries convene and have meaningful conversations to find out how they can collaborate on their shared challenges.

This is the aim of this event, is to start creating change through conversations and find ways to collaborate with each other.”
