AI & ETHICS: FROM PRINCIPLES TO PRACTICE
Phaedra Boinodiris, Trust in AI Business Transformation Leader, IBM; Cognitive World Think Tank Member

Artificial Intelligence (AI) enhances and amplifies human expertise, makes predictions more accurate, automates decisions and processes, optimizes employees’ time to focus on higher-value work, improves people’s overall efficiency, and will be KEY to helping Humankind travel to new frontiers and solve what feels now like insurmountable problems. But - we’ve got to get AI right…

Can you trust the decisions made by an AI? Just because a decision is made by an AI does not mean that the results are morally or ethically sound. This talk will introduce listeners to very tangible and holistic steps that organizations and practitioners across diverse roles can take to nurture and develop truly responsible AI.

FROM DIGITAL TO SMART: HOW AI-POWERED CONTRACT LIFECYCLE MANAGEMENT (CLM) IS TRANSFORMING SUPPLIER RELATIONSHIPS
Mark Voytek, Chief Customer Officer, SirionLabs

While enterprise functions are becoming increasingly digital, the interface and collaboration between these departments remain woefully old school. This is a key reason behind ineffective supplier management which requires various departments to operate in cohesion. 
 
As the foundation for all supplier relationships, contracts and contract management hold the key to addressing this challenge. With AI-powered CLM technology, organizations can now adopt a smarter approach to contracting that brings together automation, intelligence, and collaboration to transform supplier relationships.
 
Join Mark Voytek, Chief Customer Officer, SirionLabs for this session to discover how smarter contracting is helping organizations effectively manage complexity, ensure resilience, and transform value creation in their supplier relationships.
 

12:30 pm - 1:15 pm EST
THE POWER OF CONTRACT AUTOMATION:  A CASE STUDY IN COLLABORATION 
Nicholas Wright, Director, Digital & Innovation Sourcing, bp
Mike O’Brien, Chief Procurement Officer and Head of ContractAI at App Orchid 

  

 
This is the story of how bp partnered with their provider to solve a difficult problem: taking time to contract from months to days.  bp has thousands of suppliers around the world, and an increasing number of contracts to process, but a fixed amount of procurement and legal resources. The time to contract for SaaS contracts had risen to an average of 92 days and resources were being stretched to a point where the team worried about increased downstream risk. There was no solution on the market that addressed reducing time to contract significantly while mitigating contracting risk.  bp set out to have a solution built that would streamline the contracting process while reducing contractual risk. The primary objective was to leverage AI and Machine Learning to reduce the average time to contract while minimizing the risk of errors introduced due to limited resources. Together, the bp and App Orchid team built a solution called ContractAI. 
 

1:15 pm - 2:00 pm EST
DOING GOOD IS GOOD FOR BUSINESS: CONNECTING SECOND CHANCE WORKERS WITH EMPLOYERS IN NEED OF THEIR SKILLS  Tim Dupree, President Kelly Professional & Industrial
Keilon Ratliff, Vice President & Vertical Lead, Kelly Professional & Industrial

  

It’s a staggering statistic: One in three working-age Americans – 33% – have some type of criminal record. Most of them are non-violent offenders unable to access quality employment because of outdated background screening practices companies have in place. These blanket bans deprive Americans who are motivated to work of opportunity and economic mobility, and they make it harder for businesses in need of skilled workers to fill open positions.

The Kelly 33 second chance hiring program tackles this issue head-on. Kelly connects talented job seekers who have a non-violent, non-relevant criminal background with employers in need of their skills. The program was inspired by a successful partnership with Toyota Manufacturing in Georgetown, Kentucky, and gives hiring managers access to undiscovered talent looking for a second chance. 

In this session, learn about the impact of Kelly’s collaboration with Toyota, why the workforce solutions provider decided to launch Kelly 33, and how clients across the country are responding to it.

HOW TODAY'S DISTRIBUTED WORK OF CLOUD, EDGE AND REMOTE WORK IS LEADING TO A RENAISSANCE OF IT INFRASTRUCTURE
Ashley Green, Managing Director, Accenture



A common misconception about cloud is that it makes IT infrastructure less important. In reality, infrastructure provides the critical compute, network, workplace and data platform capabilities on which exceptional customer and employee experiences can be built. In the age of the Cloud Continuum, most company’s infrastructure—along with their applications and data—will literally live everywhere. That makes it critical for companies to embrace a renaissance of IT infrastructure. Learn more about what companies can do to unwind technology and talent debt to be positioned for the future, with a new modern backbone for the “ever-ready” digital enterprise.

12:30 pm - 1:15 pm EST

THIRD-PARTY GOVERNANCE: WHAT “GOOD” LOOKS LIKE
Marty Hill, Partner, Neo Group 


 
In the highly competitive, rapidly changing, increasingly complex and risky business environment in which enterprises operate today, the need for “good” governance has never been more acute. The larger the organization, the more diversified its business lines, the more geographically dispersed its operational footprint, and the greater the number and spread of their third parties, the more critical the need. But what does “good” governance look like? 

This session will take audiences through a three-tiered model for good governance, what lies at the foundation of a good governance model, a structured approach to third-party relationship management, and its implementation.

1:15 pm - 2:00 pm EST

Latin America faces an unprecedented refugee crisis. Since 2018, 6 million Venezuelans have fled instability and turmoil in their country, with approximately 1.8 million of them resettling in Colombia alone. IAOP, BPro (the Colombian BPO Association), and the Tent Partnership for Refugees (a global coalition of 200+ major companies committed to integrating refugees worldwide) launched an impact sourcing initiative in 2021 to advance the economic integration of Venezuelan refugees into the Colombian outsourcing sector. 10 major outsourcing firms in Colombia have joined the initiative, and have already hired thousands of Venezuelans, having seen firsthand their work ethic, resilience, and professionalism. Building on this progress, we are excited to announce the next phase of this initiative, which will take a holistic view of impact sourcing - highlighting how multinational buyers and local outsourcing providers can be instrumental in creating job opportunities for Venezuelan refugees and their host communities in the region.  Join us to hear how multinational buyers are creating job opportunities for refugees and other vulnerable populations through their partnerships with local outsourcing providers.
