The 2019 Advancing Diversity Hall of Honors Induction Experience stood alone as a humanistic voice during the 2019 CES show, as best practices and solutions for advancing diversity and inclusion were recognized at what most attendees acknowledged was "the most memorable and meaningful event during four days packed with meetings and activities." Jack Myers, founder of MediaVillage and AdvancingDiversity.org, noted the emergence at this year's CES of a new focus on the role of technology in serving, supporting and advancing humanity. "Technology needs to be an enriching human experience, making us more rather than less human, or the technology is meaningless," he noted. Myers, MediaVillage and AdvancingDiversity.org hosted more than 400 industry leaders, calling on them to "shift their attention in a sea of technology and to engage in a human experience focused on inclusion and the bonds that hold us together and make us better as individuals, an industry and as a society."
