Jim Poisant is the Secretary General of The World Information Technology and Services Alliance (WITSA). A consortium of associations from the information and communications technology industry around the world
Who are the stakeholders in and related to the global IT industry? What is the major stakeholder at large? How to engage with all these? And how to align as a global industry? Where digital technology has outstripped societal and legal frameworks, how to close the gap? Will the IT industry as a relatively ‘young’ industry settle down and find its place in the global arena taking into account as many perspectives as possible? What real societal challenges can be addressed with IT in a useful way? How to uphold accountability on a global scale? How to help ones own community with accountability? Could it hold their own community members accountable? These and other key topics are addressed in this Dialogue.
