As we build the future of technology, there are many principles and goals we can leverage to determine what tradeoffs we will make. We can prioritize user count, growth, metrics, or other goals. At True Link Financial, we have a responsibility to build software that protects and empowers some of the most vulnerable members of our communities. We try to envision a world where both tech and finance show genuine love and care for these groups - then we roll up our sleeves and go to work.

In this session, we will explore examples from the tech world of products that show love and care for users. We'll discuss things we can learn from these organizations and how to use these principles to build a more inspiring and equitable future.
