“This year’s virtual event brought to life the magic, excitement, and drive for transformative change that we all experience at the annual in-person version,” said Jim Heppelmann, President and CEO, PTC. “I was particularly pleased to see the force of change magnified inside and outside of this year’s event. For the global society, 2020 has been a year of challenge and growth. I look forward to seeing how this year’s energy and drive will be matched in next year’s event.”
In support of movements and causes that shape the world in which the technology community operates, the LiveWorx event recognized four charities as beneficiaries for donations stemming from attendee actions throughout the event. For each attendee who entered the virtual Networking Lounge, shared their experience on social media using #LiveWorx, or completed an online scavenger hunt, approximately $1 per action was donated to charities including WWF - World Wildlife Fund, International Rescue Committee, Save the Children, and Black Girls CODE. Following the event’s final keynote session, all donations were matched by presenting sponsor, PTC.
“Bringing to life the Black Girls CODE story during this year’s LiveWorx event enabled us to raise awareness of our mission across the globe, and reinforce why we need to confront this crisis today to ensure a brighter and more inclusive tomorrow,” said Kimberly Bryant, Founder and CEO, Black Girls CODE. “While there is still a lot of work to do, I am proud to have had the opportunity to share this message, and will continue to champion inclusion for all of the women entering the STEM community.”

- Jim Heppelmann, President and CEO of PTC, who spoke about how the accelerating pace of digital transformation has forced many companies to "disrupt, or be disrupted", but the recent crisis has taught organizations a new set of principles about the role of technology in an era of disruption.
- Kimberly Bryant, Founder and CEO of Black Girls CODE, who shared the Black Girls CODE story, from its founding to its current transformational moment, as well as contemporary and historical case studies of resilience and leadership by women and people of color in times of crisis.
