2020 Theme: Leading a post-pandemic enterprise

The COVID-19 crisis has brought about overnight adoption of emerging technologies, such as online learning and telemedicine. While the pandemic has accelerated technology trends, it has also brought about the biggest economic crisis in years. Who will survive an economic downturn? CIOs in the post-pandemic era will need to have robust digital communication structures and digital savvy. The digital-native lifestyle isn't coming anymore, it it hear to stay.

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, which caused the cancellation of the MIT Sloan CIO Symposium, we are introducing the 2020 MIT Sloan CIO Digital Learning Series.

We will host monthly webinars, from June through October, to bring together the best academic and industry thought leaders for discussions about leadership and technology in this digital age.

We will be gathering your feedback after each event as part of an agile process aimed at delivering a terrific attendee experience. While there is no charge to attend, we encourage you to become a supporter, which you can do when you register.

Every person who contributes $250 or more between now and the last event in October will receive a 50% off discount code for the 2021 MIT Sloan CIO Symposium (a $600 value).
