    CONVERSATION - Conversations are panel discussions that provide an in-depth, up-to-the-minute look at a single topic. Featuring three to four thought leaders and an expert moderator, Conversations consist of a 60-minute discussion, followed by 15 minutes of audience q-and-a.

    For parents in 2019, technology is the monster in the closet. Thanks to the internet, age-old problems—bullying, racial discrimination, competition in school—seem more pressing than ever before. But what if the tech boogeyman actually holds the key to raising better children? What if better data, accessible information, and digital tools hold the keys to being better parents? This Conversation will dig into the challenges of modern parenting and parse out ways that old strategies can be coupled with new tools for preparing your children for our deeply interconnected world.
