Event description
Will digital technology support diversity & inclusion initiatives in the workplace

About this Event

Please join us for a lunchtime event on Thursday 12th March for a lively and thought-provoking panel discussion on the impact of technology advances on inclusion. Rapid technological change including the advent of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is expected to have a profound effect on all of our lives. Intelligent technology which simulates human behaviour also has the potential to mitigate unconscious bias and create greater inclusion not just in our workplaces but in all aspects of our lives . Inclusion happens when we embrace all people irrespective of difference. This event will discuss the extent to which technology is an enabler of inclusion and the factors which will positively support and hinder this.

A special thanks goes to Nomura, one of CWN's corporate members, and the National Black Women's Network (NBWN), for partnering with CWN on this event, coming together to discuss such an important and topical subject.
