Botsman has been recognized as one of the “Most Creative People in Business” by Fast Company, a “Young Global Leader” by The World Economic Forum, and is part of Thinkers50 2016 Radar list of up-and-coming management thinkers. In this special IVY Ideas Night, she shows us how we can navigate trust at a time when fake news, polarizing ideas, and limitless information abound.
While today’s rapidly increasing technological advances have the potential to benefit humanity, they also carry a host of challenges and a number of confounding questions. Who should you share your personal information with? Can anything said to be truly private anymore? Are institutions — like the government, banks, and corporations — trustworthy?
Over the course of this engaging conversation, Botsman grapples with these complex ideas and more.
