Event description

Description

Join us for an evening of enthralling discussion, inspired responsible action and networking.

Displacement in tech is an ever-growing concern, but as an industry we are struggling to define what displacement is, and therefore determine where and how our organisation’s practises are having an impact on the people, communities and industries we serve.

We’ll be bringing together tech pioneers and social changemakers together to share The Federation community’s work on understanding, defining and co-create a decision-making tool to address displacement, and enable tech creators and innovators to consider the positive and negative societal consequences of their outputs.

Ideal for tech leaders, designers and developers, we’ll be sharing our insights and outputs, so bring an open mind!

The Hosts

Following a deep dive on the purpose, objectives and focus areas for The Federation, we consulted with our progressive and ethically-driven members on their priorities and support needs for taking the next step in creating an ethical digital society.

Over the coming year, The Federation will be bringing together the tech community to consider how we drive action on codes of conduct, diversity and inclusion and community giving, bringing together working groups of our membership, Friends of The Federation and some of the top industry experts in their areas.

Working in partnership with social impact consultancy Noisy Cricket, The Federation team will be facilitating a series of civic tech projects, with shared learning, co-creation of solutions and tangible outcomes central to The Federation’s vision to creating people-empowered tech.
