SubOptic’s 6th and final event in the COVID-19 Spotlight Series: NAVIGATING COVID-19: CREATING OPPORTUNITY OUT OF CRISIS will focus on new opportunities created by the submarine cable industry over these past months – some (but not all) of which have grown out of new ways of doing business and operating our global communications fabric as we navigate our way through the pandemic.

Our special guest speaker for this event is Dr Julie Albright, Digital Sociologist and Author of “Left to Their Own Devices: How Digital Natives Are Reshaping the American Dream”. Dr Albright will share insights on human-technology sociological trends and how COVID-19 has impacted these trends – including individual and collective dependence on technology & its supporting infrastructure.

SubOptic’s Spotlight #6 will touch upon:

  1. Cooperation across industry sectors and with governments that enabled collective progress in serving global communication needs
  2. How technology investment has enabled our industry to perform during COVID and how further investment in technology may enable even more efficiencies and effectiveness moving forward
  3. How COVID has shown the value to the industry of people and what that means about investing in people in the future
  4. Critical voids in our industry left wanting of new solutions
