Disrupted 2021 – Tech Manitoba

Disrupted goes digital in a 3-part conference series 
February 25th, May 20th & October 21st, 2021

What is Disrupted?

Disrupted is a leading force in uniting the tech community in Manitoba. We provide a place for education, business connection and inspiration. The keynote speakers, breakout sessions and networking opportunities at Disrupted have been a catalyst in strengthening connections and our tech ecosystem in Manitoba.

Disrupted in 2021

The world and in person connection have (dare we say) been disrupted. While we adapt, it is important that we continue to create the space and opportunity for our tech community to safely connect to share ideas, grow networks, business partnership and find talent.

Disrupted is going digital in 2021, with not one, but three dates! Disrupted will take us through the year, in a 3-part conference series on February 25, May 20 and October 21, 2021.

At Disrupted, together we’ll discover how the tech sector can help our community recover and become a solid bet for investment, innovation, and talent. The past year has been a tough one, but we can start today to connect, collaborate and create a robust future for ourselves and the next generation.

The conference series will examine tech’s role in the path forward, how we shape recovery locally and globally and the crucial impacts that diversity, inclusion, privacy and security will have in defining the road ahead.

The Themes

FEBRUARY 25, 2021
Recovery
The new economic situation requires businesses and educational institutions to employ innovation strategies to create pathways to recovery. How organizations handle their recovery will in part define their reputation and performance for potentially years to come.

MAY 20, 2021
Cybersecurity 
Cybersecurity risk is increasing, driven by global connectivity, usage of cloud services, and increasing sophistication of technological criminals. Business leaders can no longer view information security as a technical challenge, best left to the IT and cybersecurity professionals. It is a business risk that needs to top of mind at every level of your organization. And it is a personal issue, that individuals must address  to protect their own identities, finances and safety.

OCTOBER 21, 2021
Diversity
Research has proven the economic and social benefits of involving a diversity of perspectives in the workplace. It isn’t easy to navigate inclusivity and diversity strategies, and there is often a large gap between the successes that leaders report versus the reality that employees feel. Workplace culture has never been more important, even within the context of remote work, so come learn and participate in this crucial discussion.
