Emerging Tech & Ethics: What are the Best Practices with Today's (and Tomorrow's) Technology?
David Ryan Polgar, founder of All Tech is Human

David Ryan Polgar is a pioneering tech ethicist who paved the way for the hotly-debated issues around Facebook, privacy, ethical design, digital wellbeing, and what it means to be human in the digital age. He has appeared on CBS This Morning, Fast Company, SiriusXM, Associated Press, Washington Post's "Can He Do That?" podcast, Mashable, and many others.

David is the founder of All Tech Is Human, an initiative to better align technology with the human interests of users, which recently held an ethical tech summit in NYC. With a background as an attorney and educator, he is an advocate for co-creating a more thoughtful future towards technology. David is the co-host of the podcast & NYC live show Funny as Tech, where he is paired with UCB comedian Joe Leonardo to tackle the thorniest issues in tech--inside a comedy theater. He is a frequent writer (Quartz, IBM thinkLeaders, Dell Perspectives) and global speaker (3-time TEDx, Harvard Business School, Princeton University, The School of The New York Times, The Next Web).

David recently released a digital citizenship class for adults (Skillshare) and a tech ethics hub for college students (Cengage). He is an advisor for Hack Mental Health, the Technology and Adolescent Mental Wellness (TAM) program, and #ICANHELP, and is committed to bringing together organizations, advocates, students, academia, government, and industry to better collaborate on the major societal issues emerging tech has presented.

Servant Leadership Today
Dan Owolabi, director of Branches Worldwide, teacher & pastor

Drawing upon his talent for storytelling and passion for connecting with others, Dan has spent the past 15 years working to empower those around him.

For nearly a decade, Dan served as a teacher and pastor. In 2017, Dan decided to take his passion for developing leaders to a wider audience. His immediate success and subsequent speaking invitations eventually led Dan to start a company dedicated to training and inspiring leaders around the country.

Additionally, Dan is the executive director of Branches Worldwide, an innovative nonprofit aiming to impact 30 leaders in 30 countries for 30 years.

And while he has helped thousands of business executives, educators, athletes, and young adults to lead more effectively, he is the first to recognize that his own most important leadership responsibility remains to his wife Erica and their two daughters.

Dan holds an undergraduate degree from Malone University and a graduate degree from Ashland University. When he isn’t traveling or speaking, he is most often reading, running, and spending time with his family.
