'The Evolution of Work – Preparing for your next role that doesn't exist yet', 12th September at 09:30–10:00

The world of work is changing faster than ever before. We are told that the majority of jobs that will exist in 2030 haven’t actually been invented yet. So, how do you prepare for a job category that doesn’t even exist?

In this talk, Sarah will share anecdotes from her own career journey and draw on the learnings she has made pivoting from declining industries to emerging skillsets in rocketship companies.

Key takeaways include:

  • Keep yourself and your skillsets relevant in a rapidly evolving eco-system
  • Keep one eye on the horizon to predict future trends and avoid surprises
  • Leverage your current experience and existing skills to leapfrog into the future of work
  • Carve out opportunities to pivot your career on your terms
  • Increase your 'Adaptability Quotient' and learn to thrive in an environment of change

'Spotting and Calling Out Micro-Inequalities', 12th September at 11:30-12:30

Small instances of off-hand statements are how we detect the majority of unconscious biases. These small instances can build up to a lack of belonging and lead us to question our 'fit'.

How do we spot these behaviours and what can we do to stop them from happening? We explore how to proactively discuss and stop microaggressions in the workplace.

Key takeaways include:

  •  Understanding what microaggressions are and how to identify them
  • Learning how to open up the conversation without leading the other to feel accused and defensive
  • Examining how to get colleagues to support and effectively change aspects of the culture

Key takeaways include:

  • Insight into primary research evidence on benefits of virtual reality for pain management
