The guest speakers Mr. Peter Faulkner, who is head of global information technology at Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation, and Mr. Davide Cristiani, Luiss and NUCB BS DDP student and information engineer by profession. Both shared their experiences and insights about the IT industry and why many are failing in the process of digital transformation. What are the challenges which bring startups and innovators to the point of failure?

About the Inclusive Environment series
The Global Frontier Network (GFN), one of the subnetworks under the Student Representative Council (SRC), is made up of current students who would like to leverage the strength of our School's diversity in order to engage all members of the NUCB community and business professionals with a new webinar series.
Building an Inclusive Environment is essential to any organization that truly wants to be connected to the society, acknowledging, accepting, supporting, respecting and valuing each and every single individual, their unique experiences and perspectives, regardless of differences. This applies at all scales: studies have shown that when Diversity & Inclusion are properly implemented, the performance of the organization is improved across the board with various metrics (productivity, innovation, financial performance, etc.).
About the Global Frontier Network
GFN is a student-led initiative that strives to be the platform that brings together the School's diverse community and forges new connections. With borders and boundaries coming down, it is essential to be mindful of the various differences and nuances tied to everyone's background and experiences.

• To ensure an accessible, inclusive, and stimulating network for all students, regardless of their gender, nationality, ethnic, cultural, social, religious and political backgrounds.
• To energize student mobility between all programs
