Blockchain and Human Rights
What: SingularityU Canada Meet the Faculty Webinar Series: Meet Anne Connelly
When: Tuesday, May 7, 2019 | 1:00 PM EST
Who: Anne Connelly, SingularityU Canada Blockchain Faculty
Description: Blockchain is touted as the backbone of the world’s future financial system. But its greatest impacts won’t be seen on the trading floor at the TSX – they’ll be seen across the far corners of the earth in countries where people don’t have access to basic human rights. Blockchains can enable freedom of speech, access to social mobility and will help to bring whole economies out of poverty.
Highlighting some examples in developing countries, Anne will demonstrate how blockchain can be harnessed for social good around the world.
Anne is passionate about harnessing blockchain and decentralized technology to transform the lives of people in developing countries. She is Faculty at Singularity University in Silicon Valley & SingularityU Canada, teaching global leaders how exponential technologies can solve problems that impact over a billion people. She has been an active part of the global blockchain community since 2012, and is currently working with notable companies including Uulala, Bunz, DLTvc and Doyenne Capital. She previously worked with Doctors Without Borders Canada in Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of Congo, and currently serves on their board of directors. Anne has a Bachelor of Life Sciences from Queen’s University, an MBA from McMaster University, and a Fintech Certificate from MIT. She was honoured as one of CBC’s 12 Young Leaders Changing Canada and one of the Fifty Most Inspirational Women in Technology in Canada.
