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

Organisational Architecting to Create a Truly Inclusive Workforce

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

When we are building and growing our teams, we always want to find the “right person” for the job but how do we think about what “right” means? How do we design a process that removes our biases as much as possible, how do we help those in the hiring process understand what a bias is, recognise their own biases and get comfortable with a potentially an adjusted/new way of recruiting for your team.

While it may sound like this talk is primarily for recruitment departments, my aim is to connect with hiring managers as the process for building a team starts with them. How we write job descriptions, how we review resumes, who we ask to sit on the interview panel, how we construct the interviews themselves.

Key takeaways include:

Understand what bias in the recruiting process looks like.

How you can help yourself and your team understand biases

A guideline for designing a process that removes or at least reduces them.

In some cases, data such as postcode can affect customers based on their socioeconomic status as well as how many car accidents occur in their area.

Key takeaways include:

  • The importance of having diverse teams build products that are fit for diverse world
  • How much weight should algorithms put on affinity data
  • Explore if the focus on big data is doing more harm than good
