As humans we are hardwired to focus on our weaknesses. In evolutionary terms, it helped us survive in the wild, and continues to feature strongly in our day to day lives. From our education - where teachers red pen highlights more errors than good work. Right through to the workplace where feedback is often focused on areas to improve on. As a result we are often very good at identifying threats, weaknesses and areas of improvement, but rarely can we clearly articulate and focus on our strengths. From this lens, it can be difficult to identify and reach for opportunities when you are more focused on why you’re not quite good enough. In this highly interactive workshop, go through the steps to help you identify your strengths and start to look at opportunities to better utilise them, for your career, your business, and even in your personal life.

Key takeaways include:

  • Clear understanding of why identifying your strengths works to your advantage
  • Identify and articulate your own strengths
  • Explore the opportunities this presents for you

Human activity should not compromise the long-term balance between the economic, environmental and social pillars. The evaluation of technology impact is a necessary part of all research and innovation (R&I) and attempts to improve the relationship between technology and society. Emerging technologies have the potential to deliver benefits. However, such technologies are inherently uncertain. Technology designers must examine the ethical implications of things which may not yet exist, or things which may have impacts we cannot predict. In so doing, they must deal with uncertainty. Non-ethicists (such as Designers, Product Managers, Engineers and Software Developers) can and should engage in ethical issues pertaining to the design and assessment of emerging technologies. Join this discussion to discover how this can be achieved using the Human Factors & Ethics Canvas (HFEC).

Key takeaways include:

  • Learn how people still play an integral role to implementation and development of RPA
  • Understand the importance of ethics when designing and implementing new technology and what impact it can have

News media, whether 'traditional' or 'new', remain the primary means through which public conversation is conducted. The representation of women's voices in that conversation has long been a challenge, but as artificial intelligence (AI) systems increasingly pervade news publishing, new ones have arisen, around bias and transparency in particular. At the same time, AI also affords opportunity to redress some of these longstanding problems, through better measurement or the use of well-designed tools to nudge good decision making, amongst publishers and others. Join this talk to discover how AI can be utilised to reduce the risk of publishing harmful and defamatory material.

Key takeaways include:

  • Learn why the time to ensure that AI systems are designed and optimised for values, such as equality, is now
  • Discover how technology designed through collaboration between computer scientists and public speech experts is crucial to achieving this
  • Understand the difference between 'toxic' speech and unpopular opinion

Like so many well intended efforts the diversity agenda is at risk of doing nothing more than positing that bringing women together to discuss perceived roadblocks to career or societal inequality, engaging in catchy social media campaigns, gender quotas or indeed bringing to the fore female mentoring programs will deliver on the promise of equality. Research shows that many of these ever populist initiatives do little or nothing to progress the goal of equality, and may unintentionally be creating a situation where we merely swap one excluded group with another. The role of the organisation shapes how we architect it and intentionally create opportunities for everyone to contribute, belong, impact and grow, can in fact be the catalyst that creates a truly inclusive workforce.

Key takeaways include:

  • Learn how to gain the full commitment of the entire organisation to drive inclusion
  • Understand how tying inclusion to business growth will ensure leaders realise the value of diverse organisations

A modern-day phrase that’s increasingly being heard is that of the ‘portfolio career’. Gone are the days when you leave school and get a job in a company that you spend the rest of your life in. In fact, these days people don’t even spend their entire working lives in one field, let alone one company! Hence the emergence of the ‘portfolio career’, incorporating lots of different jobs, often simultaneously and back-to-back! There are many ways to build a portfolio career, and during this presentation we’ll consider the advantages and risks, alongside the rewards that can be reaped from this modern-day way of working.

Key takeaways include:
