Manipulation by Disinformation: How Elections are Swayed

In 2016, we witnessed as the Trump and Brexit campaigns leveraged the help of Cambridge Analytica to spread disinformation and sway voters in their favour.

Diversity is an ongoing priority—and challenge—for many organisations, especially in the technology space. Research has proven that diversity on a team brings unique benefits, including new perspectives and innovative solutions. These, in turn, contribute to a stronger overall company. And yet, in many companies around the world, achieving a diverse workforce is still more aspiration than reality.
