Inforum, a nonprofit organization striving to build gender equity in business leadership, will host its 16th Annual NAIAS Breakfast on Jan. 19. Confirmed speakers are Marcy Klevorn, executive vice president and president of mobility at Ford Motor Co., and Mike Beebe, CEO of Mayfield Robotics, maker of the Kuri home robot. The discussion will center on the ways in which artificial intelligence is changing human interaction with technology.

Tickets are on sale now for the event, scheduled for 7:30-9:30 a.m. at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center. The event regularly sells out, and attracts automotive executives from many of the largest companies in the industry, as well as individuals who are interested in hearing from cutting-edge thought leaders. Previous Inforum speakers have included Mary Lou Jepsen, Ursula Burns, Dan Akerson, Dan Ammann, Meg Whitman, Sergio Marchionne and Mark Fields.

The breakfast is part of Inforum’s AutomotiveNEXT initiative to provide visibility, strategic networking, and other opportunities for women and companies in the automotive industry.

The breakfast on Jan. 19 takes place immediately before Inforum’s AutomotiveNEXT event, which brings together students and industry executives for small-group dialogue on industry issues. The event gives students access to the knowledge of experienced executives and helps them build a professional network before entering the workforce. AutomotiveNEXT, one of four Inforum industry groups, provides a network for women in the automotive industry while enabling them to achieve their full potential.
