The age of reason rhymes with Niue Email List and it is around this that the various interventions of the Closing Ceremony of the General Assembly of Cigref revolved. “We who handle, pilot, sell digital technologies, we have a responsibility “: this was the watchword of the evening. The conference began with an introductory word from the President of Cigref, Bernard Duverneuil. Then, Jean-Christophe Lalanne, one of the Vice-Presidents, defined the concept “Age of Reason”. Corinne Dajon, Administrator Cigref then spoke to us about the challenges of the strategic value of trust. We then attended a round table where the issue of corporate social responsibility (CSR) was addressed and how it concerns information systems

departments . The conference ended with Jacques-François Marchandise, delegate general of Fing, questioning the profound changes in society. This article covers the content of the round table which brought together CSR and digital experts : Muriel Barnéoud, Director of societal commitment of the La Poste group Godefroy de Bentzmann, President of Syntec Numérique Isabelle Juppé, Corporate Social Responsibility Director of the Lagardère group Jean-Claude Laroche, Vice-President of Cigref and CIO of Enedis Digital challenges in CSR policies The challenges facing companies around CSR mainly revolve around two pillars: the environment and human rights . Muriel Barnéoud considers that “ digital ethics ” must include these two

issues. Until recently, we never imagined the scope that digital technology would take or to what extent this field would be transversal . Today, all economic and non-economic activities are affected. Thus, we tend to give meaning to the way we use digital technology. Isabelle Juppé’s opinion is similar to that of Muriel de Barnéoud. CSR is based on the dual climate and human pillar, and digital technology must be integrated into CSR issues . Digital technology has indeed become transversal, that is to say it applies to any type of structure and field, which amplifies its impact. It must therefore be at the center of decision-making made by


the company and in this case within CSR policies. The transversality of digital technology and the creation of value that it generates has given rise to new social, societal and environmental challenges. Isabelle Juppé mentioned a last issue, that of confidence . Digital technology is indeed a source of questions and mistrust; particularly with cybersecurity. Nature Conservation, Responsibility, World Respect data owners Jean-Claude Laroche evokes the ethical issue of data management companies. Concretely, this implies the protection of the data, the transparency of its use and the consent of the persons concerned.

Gender Bias

The CIO of Enedis mentions the real ethical dimension of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). It also stresses that the value obtained from data must return to consumers (by enabling them to consume less, for example) and be used for the energy transition, and more particularly in the context of a public service. Gender bias It was with Isabelle Juppé that the question of gender bias arose: the position of women in digital fields has changed very little, and for some sectors has even regressed. Isabelle Juppé takes the example of artificial intelligence. Indeed, gender biases are found in the databases, that is to say

in the data which themselves convey stereotypes existing in society. Artificial intelligence has brought the subject of the disparity between women and men in the digital world back to the forefront . Algorithms and machine learning should be used to identify and combat these biases. The stake today is the growth of the number of women in this field: how to make them join it? How to break the stereotypes conveyed from an early age? Many initiatives are being taken today to fight against these biases (including the Fondation Femmes @ Num érique) and this is a very good sign! Smartphone, Hand, Photomontage, Faces Digital
