How Blanca is building a better working world

"I believe that a good digital governance contributes to creating trust in organizations, from all clients, investors and employees, and  helps to achieve a more sustainable and long-term value.

I am fortunate for having the opportunity of being involved in projects that combine legal, technical and ethical advice That is becoming common when designing and implementing data and AI governance policies.

Glad to see that more and more organizations include ethical experts in their teams that contribute to create ethical tech strategies."
