Amazon Academy: Innovation through Diversity

The Amazon Academy on Innovation is hosting a conference on "Innovation through Diversity" on Thursday, September 26, 2019 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. This will take place in cooperation with the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster at the Einstein Center Digital Future in Berlin-Mitte.

Diversity is a key economic, social and cultural topic of the 21st century. Diversity was described by the majority as one of the most important drivers of innovation. We therefore want to discuss with you the challenges and opportunities of diversity in the face of digitization. Together, we will examine the questions of which steps, tools and infrastructures are necessary with regard to diversity in order to sustainably ignite the existing creativity and innovation potential in Germany. Renowned representatives* from science, politics and the media will sound out and discuss opportunities and challenges for Germany as a business location in an interdisciplinary exchange.
