Join your industry colleagues to reconnect at Level Up 22 in Las Vegas next March.

Opening Speakers: Examining Social Impacts: Financial Transactions & Human Trafficking

Dr. Stacie Petter, Ph.D., Professor of Information Systems, Baylor University

Dr. Laurie Giddens, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Information Systems, University of North Texas

Human trafficking is a global, multibillion-dollar industry in which individuals are compelled to work or perform services through force, fraud, or coercion by individuals, organizations, or nations. In this session, we will describe the various business models and financial transactions that occur in human trafficking, offer examples of financial and technology policies and discuss if and how these policies reduce risk or harm in the context of human trafficking. Attendees will also learn about ways to support additional research and efforts in the fight against human trafficking.

Closing Keynote: Practical Innovation

Remy Arteaga, Executive Director, CUNY Startups

The term “innovation” means many things to many people. Add the different types of innovations—radical, breakthrough, discontinuous, architectural, and incremental—and you have confusion.  Additionally, innovation invokes the names of stars like Steve Jobs and companies like 3M. It's no wonder that most companies focus on the now and leave the future to others. However, this does not have to be the case.  Innovation doesn't have to erase your profits or break the bank. All-size firms and organizations can innovate, and innovation can be a practical side of your organization today.
