Diversity and inclusion is a key priority for all global businesses. Forward-thinking companies are actively hiring for cognitive diversity and embedding data driven strategies to turbo charge their D&I agenda. Disruptive technologies such as artificial intelligence (or AI) and machine learning are opening up new ways to derive novel insights and augment decision making for more diverse and inclusive workplaces. The digital age is no longer a 'thing'. It just is. But key questions are still to be answered.

How must companies prepare for increasing regulation of AI across most sectors and geographies?
