Speaker bio

Elatia Abate (AB '99, MBA '08) is a true visionary and pioneer, having devoted her life to living on the edge of the future of work and creating solutions to global challenges at the intersection of the future of work, education, and information.

She currently serves as Futurist in Residence for FESA Group, a human capital solutions firm based out of Sao Paulo, Brazil. In her work, she partners with companies that range in size from early-stage start-ups to Fortune 500 organizations to guide them with the strategies that will empower them as technology’s disruption continues to accelerate.
