SXSW – South by Southwest
March 13, 2023 – 21:57
Yasodara Cordova, Head of Technology at Unico, is an activist and coder with a long history of democratizing technology, infrastructure and governance. In her career, she was a consultant for Brazil at the United Nations, was the executive director of Operation Serenata do Amor, was a member of American universities and continues to be a researcher in the field.
At SXSW, the CEO was part of the “Shattering Paradigms on the Future of Digital ID” panel, the purpose of which was to discuss what future is in store for virtual identity given the direction of the Internet and the decentralization of Web 3.0.
Furthermore, Yasodara has his own agenda at the festival: the search for innovation. “To many, it may seem obvious to say that innovation requires transforming the world. After all, startups are there every day finding and solving problems that are also part of a larger commitment to society,” he says.
Ao Meio & Mensagem, shared her schedule for Tuesday the 14th.
Inclusive leadership in technology and innovation
8:30 – 10:30*
Presented by Shell USA, this interactive breakfast opportunity will take an inclusive approach to technology and innovation. What amazes me the most are the discussions about the steps we can take to make meaningful changes (both in our careers and in our organizations) and how we can best support each other in and out of the workplace.
The leadership and diversity debate is raging in the industry, and it’s interesting how the supply chain plays into it. These seem to be conflicting points, but the lecture will bring coherent points of view and the importance of diverse leadership in decision-making.
How to create an ecosystem of training and retraining
10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m
Presented by PwC and FIAP, the panel will address the future of work, how to develop upskilling and reskilling operations in a dynamic ecosystem, and how corporations can become an agile learning community that will respond to the world’s rapid transformation to address the most important problems.
As the world continues to accelerate change to drive productivity, innovation and growth, bridging the digital skills gap is a complex issue, particularly in Brazil. I believe that the improvement and retraining of the labor force has never been more urgent, and more understanding of how to unite and reintegrate people into the labor market has everything to do with this ecosystem that we want to see in Brazil, people who can leave a position extinguished by automation and reintegrate to the market in an even better position.
Data rights are workers’ rights
10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m
Hilton Austin Downtown – Salon K
Presented by Rede Omidyar, this panel is entirely related to privacy rights, since setting boundaries is also a matter of privacy. That’s exactly why everyone should take care of workers, especially in the age of remote work.
The discussion will be about the unbalanced relationship between employers and workers who collect data and carry out excessive surveillance of their daily work. There is a discussion about the role of workers in reimagining our data culture and how the data economy can work for everyone.
Featured Session: The Future of Sex
11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m
Hilton Austin Downtown – Salon H
Increasing online protection against fraud and harassment and regulating it so that children do not see such content about sex are touchy topics for this forum. The lecture will bring innovations in the sector, which of course include issues very close to privacy mechanisms and digital identity itself as protection of the individuality of each individual in intimate moments, where people should have sovereignty over their digital footprints.
What will that future look like? Is it in Brazil? It’s worth getting involved and understanding how we support, partner, and prepare early-stage venture companies at the intersection of sex, technology, and wellness.
