Why Our Systems Fail and What We Can Do About It

Tuesday, October 5
4:00 PM – 5:00 PM

Andras Tilcsik
Social Scientist, Professor, Author

Due to their incredible complexity, our modern systems—from healthcare to travel, finance to media—are primed for failure. And things are only getting worse. National Business Book Award-winning author Andras Tilcsik offers a timely remedy. Not only a convincing diagnosis of why complexity creates failure in systems, it’s a practical guidebook to preventing the next disaster—before it strikes.

Augmented Human: How Technology Is Shaping the New Reality

Wednesday, October 6
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

Dr. Helen Papagiannis
Augmented Reality Specialist, Author

Our digital future is no longer a distant promise, but a rapidly growing industry with real-world clout. Consider Facebook’s $2 billion acquisition of Virtual Reality headset maker Oculus and their new AR campus of 400 people, Microsoft’s recent release of HoloLens 2, and the $1.25 billion raised by Epic Games this past year. In this truly cutting-edge talk, Dr. Helen Papagiannis helps us understand the significance of Augmented Reality (AR), and how it is further being organically integrated into our everyday lives. What opportunities does AR present for business, design, and culture? How can we contribute to and help define this new technological era? And how will it forever change the way we live, work, and play? With great gusto and up-to-the-minute examples, Dr. Papagiannis leads us head-on into our virtual future. 

Rethinking Risk + DEI for a Better Future

4:00 PM – 5:00 PM

Monica Merrifield
ERM & Compliance Leader at Federation of Canadian Municipalities, and Vice Chair RIMS DE&I Advisory Council

Patti Steis
Managing Director, Southeast Region Global Risk, Marsh

As your organization strives to advance diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I), what has it learned during the past year and what best practices could it be implementing now? Examine key results from the 18th annual Marsh/RIMS Excellence in Risk Management project. Explore organizational responses to recent events and what many consider are defining moments in human history. Consider as well as evolving trends in DE&I risks and opportunities to build inclusive cultures that are more capable of productive change. Join the discussion about strategic risk linking with DEI for a better, more inclusive future. Hosted by the RIMS DE&I Advisory Council.
