We encourage everyone to join us this summer to learn about a variety of topics. Innovation Women members, non-members, men and women are welcome to join!


6:00 - 6:15 p.m. - Registration and networking

6:15 - 6:20 p.m. - Introduction by Staples

6:20 - 7:30 p.m. - Intelligent Automation led by Jagathi Gururajan

Intelligent automation is the next-gen AI-based process automation that is poised to dramatically change how we conduct business. Over the next three to five years, all our work-lives will be affected in some way as the barriers to heavy-duty tech infrastructure, large data repositories and new digital technologies diminish. To stay competitive and grow, organizations will undertake significant investments without the luxury of proven roadmaps and returns. They also need to ensure steady business-as-usual operations through the change.

This is a session for the non-technologist to understand AI and Machine Learning. It will provide a framework to confidently participate in digital transformation initiatives and resulting process re-design.

7:30 - 8:00 p.m. - Networking- Light refreshments will be served
