NEW YORK, NY — CLC Advisors today announced that CEO Cindy Chin will deliver a keynote at the Diversity in Blockchain Switzerland Luncheon on January 23, 2020 along with HSH Prince Michael of Lichtenstein at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Founded in 2018, Diversity In Blockchain Switzerland (DiBS) is an action-oriented think tank of professional leaders interested in sharing knowledge, exchanging ideas and developing capabilities in blockchain technology and its future development.

“The case for diversity is across the globe and in the work that we’ve done, the conversations about what has changed still remain the same, but with small incremental changes much progress can occur. There are business and societal impact cases in economic development through investing in inclusion of women, people of color, and other subset groups that are overlooked. As we move towards solving grand challenges of some the world’s largest problems such as financial inclusion, identity, food, climate change, and sustainability to name a few, societies will become more reliant on open source communities for some the biggest and brightest ideas for innovation. You cannot have the healthy communities and ecosystems without diversity and inclusion, elimination of over half of populations. We no longer live in silos, this is an interconnected world.” says Ms. Chin.

“I am honored to return back to Switzerland, one of the leading innovation centers for blockchain, and to be invited to speak at Diversity in Blockchain Switzerland at the World Economic Forum meetings in Davos. I look forward to seeing firsthand the work being done in the DACH region.”

The Diversity in Blockchain Switzerland will be take place in Davos, Switzerland on 23 January 2020.
