WIT.Connect: Digital Automation Revolution: Impact on Women & Work - PREREGISTRATION CLOSED - WALKINS WELCOME
1676 International Dr. 12th Floor, Room 12206
McLean, VA 22102
Thursday, January 18, 2018, 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM EDT
Category: WIT.Connect

Digital automation is coming...actually, it's here already! Robots, drones, self-driving cars, and more. So how will these drastic changes in technology impact how we work, the skills we need to do our jobs, and we can position ourselves to be in significant roles in the future?

This interactive event will discuss these issues as well as how businesses today will utilize intelligent automation systems in order to execute business processes faster and smarter. Intelligent automation empowers employees to interact with customers, co-workers and vendors in efficient and productive ways, yet additional (non IT-dependent) skills, such as expertise with tools that are workflow based, automatically scalable and operating in real-time with advanced analytics, will be needed to oversee the automation.

Come to learn about and network in the digital age!
