Synopsis

The BCS President is working closely with the team at head office to streamline BCS activity under four themes and campaign goals agreed and signed off by the BCS Trustee Board and Council:

  • Our digital lives should be in the hands of competent, ethical and accountable professionals.
  • Greater diversity and inclusion in the IT profession benefits society
  • The Digital Divide is a modern measure of inequality; it can be closed by access to skills as well as technology
  • The world will achieve Net Zero more rapidly with support of digital and data technologies

This webinar series is an opportunity to hear from the BCS President about the four themes, how they will be taken forward across the BCS and ask questions.

Expert panels with be convened to provide context and identify how the key themes can intersect with the wider contexts across the UK and internationally.
