WE announces livestream with Michael Knight
Women in Electronics (WE), a 501c3 nonprofit organisation with the mission to open opportunities for women to advance in the electronics and industrial industries, announces a first ever opportunity to participate via livestream at their sold-out Summit in September.
On 21 September 2023, WE will host a livestream with Endries International CEO, Michael Knight, presenting: ‘Coding Diversity into Technology’ at its Annual Leadership Development Summit. This thought-provoking livestream is open to the electronics industry, the industrial industry, and any other industry impacted by the unintended consequences of technological advances, including AI technology.
Michael Knight’s presentation is designed specifically to address biases being hardwired into the AI technology that is becoming an ever-larger presence in our personal and work lives. As an influencer at the forefront of innovation, Michael Knight is a widely followed and well-known presenter of his findings, analysis, and opinions to corporate boards of directors and industry conference audiences.
Women in Electronics is committed to expanding the impact of their mission to industries related to electronics.
When asked about the relationship between electronics and industrial industries, Michael Knight said: “Industrial is a super segment beneath which many very large end market segments reside, including industrial automation, production equipment, and power generation. With the move to electrify and connect everything from automobiles to furniture to lawnmowers, the electronic content in these segments is growing very rapidly creating a growing intersection between essential parts, like fasteners, which hold it all together, and electronic components. When I walk a customer’s production line, I find parts made by Phoenix Contact, Molex, Vishay, and many others feeding those lines, side-by-side with fasteners supplied by my company.”
Michael brings his background to the 7th Annual Leadership Development Summit, themed, ‘Level Up,’ which is intended to provide attendees with the tools and strategies to elevate their performance and progress their careers to the next level. Attendees will primarily include managers and upper-level managers from across the channels in the electronics and industrial industries, with a healthy representation of distributors, component manufacturers, contract manufacturers, and other channel partners.
WE Founder, President, and Chief Executive Officer comments: “Michael’s presentation is loaded with fascinating data and essential for all industries to consider, as the impacts are great for us all personally and professionally. ‘Coding Diversity into Technology’ paints the picture for the ‘why’ behind WE, and we are honoured for the opportunity to see Michael deliver this intriguing content live, in true Michael Knight fashion.” Livestream registration can be found on the women in electronics homepage.
