Ethical leaders protect and save lives
As we rebuild our economy in a post-COVID world, families and businesses depend on ethical leaders who value the dignity of all stakeholders.
Recent reports suggest that 26% of the richest people in the world now have as much wealth as the poorest 3.8 billion people. America’s richest 10% own 92% of the stock market. Predatory capitalism –where profit at any cost is the driving mandate– is enabled by amorality and financial self-dealing. The erosion of privacy, along with systemic inequality of economic opportunity and the delusion that technology has a positive impact on society has to be called into question.
CNI offers workshops, seminars and resources that raise awareness, promotes dignity, respect and serves the best interest of all stakeholders.
For better or worse, technology is a manifestation of the philosophies, politics, and economic values of its owners.
That’s where the Center for Nonconformist Innovation comes in. We train managers not to throw technology at every problem. We inspire leaders to upgrade their philosophies, implement privacy strategies that respect the dignity of all stakeholders and to have more transparency and accountability to those they serve.
Nonconformist innovation is a provocative human-centered framework for thinking about and restoring ethics and values in capitalism and leadership.
Often, companies bringing emerging tech solutions to market do so with a bias for fixing problems with technology and not for business outcomes or social responsibility. CNI helps companies by putting business outcomes with responsible technology in the spotlight, amplifying their impact.
When you donate to CNI, you become part of a movement that can spark impactful deals and turn nonconformist innovation into responsible technology, faster. With your support, we mobilize capital to support our mission of restoring ethics and values in capitalism and leadership with a focus on privacy tech, ethics, innovation and sustainability.
Dawn is the founder and CEO of her company, Interlokit, which has a portfolio of patents with the aim of building user confidence and awareness around their relationship with technology and providing options for users to own and manage their data. Dawn came to CNI with existential questions about how she might direct future investments towards protecting society vs. building the business and investing in her patent portfolio.
Last night I re-read your article, “How Nonconformist Innovation Enables Ethical Business Transformation,” which brilliantly describes my instinctive responsibility to build the “greatest good” around Interlokit’s patents. Your leadership in this article, alone, provides me continued inspiration and validation to scale Interlokit’s patents for “We the People.”
Through her involvement with CNI, Dawn receives the inspiration and support she needs to continue to build a ready-to-scale jewelry line for smartwatches alongside her search for the most impactful use for Interlokit’s broadest patent claim.
