The cornerstone of the digital world is trust and key to that experience is a secure and verifiable digital identity. More than one billion people worldwide lack a basic verifiable identity. Without recognizable and consistent proof of identity there can be no financial, health, citizen, or digital inclusion. Women in Identity is a not-for-profit organization championing diversity and inclusion in the identity sector. Women in Identity enables change through awareness from our research projects (such as the code of conduct) and through our sponsors and members. In this keynote the chair and vice chair of the Board will share insights on the impact of identity exclusion and provide practical and pragmatic ways organizations and individuals can help drive Identity inclusion.
