The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) announced that Nasdaq’s Adena Friedman will be the headline speaker for the CES 2023 Leaders in Technology (LIT) Dinner. This invitation-only event brings together policymakers, technologists, media and entrepreneurs.
Emmy Award-winning FOX Business Network (FBN) anchor Liz Claman will host an exclusive discussion with Friedman on the critical role of industry, technology and policy in protecting and maximizing the integrity of the world’s financial markets. The conversation will shed light on Nasdaq’s role in the fight against financial crime and the evolving role of digital assets in future markets.
Since January 2017, Friedman has served as President and Chief Executive Officer of Nasdaq and a member of the Nasdaq Board of Directors. She brings more than 20 years of industry leadership and expertise and has largely shaped Nasdaq’s transformation from its foundation as the world’s leading exchange to a technology company serving the global financial ecosystem.
Claman is the Emmy Award-winning anchor of The Claman Countdown. She joined FBN in October 2007 as an anchor. At previous LIT dinners, she interviewed Impossible Foods and Waymo leaders.
“As the first woman to lead a global exchange, Adena shines in leading Nasdaq’s transformation and promoting a more inclusive economy,” said CTA President and CEO Gary Shapiro. One of our dearest business journalists, we are honored to have Liz once again on stage at CES with us to host this thought-provoking conversation.”
The LIT Dinner is part of the CES 2023 Technology Leaders Program, which aims to provide senior government officials with insight into how technology impacts our lives. The LIT program drives discussions between government and industry around the innovation policy landscape and will include a program of sessions around topics such as autonomous vehicles, cryptocurrencies, trade and cybersecurity.
Friedman joins already announced keynote speakers including AMD’s Dr. Lisa Su, BMW AG’s Oliver Zipse, Delta Air Lines’ Ed Bastian and Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares.
