Rehumanizing Work in an Age of Accelerating Technological Progress

May 21, 2021 6:00 PM CEST GET TICKETS

Technology brings huge benefits to corporations, enabling them to increase productivity and offering almost limitless opportunities for growth and expansion.

While this connectedness brings advantages, it can also dehumanize working processes, especially at times when many companies have gone partly or fully remote. Employees know their colleagues largely as LinkedIn profiles and Slack icons, which might reduce the level of empathy and alienate them from co-workers. The alienating effect of technology is not only about the inability to interact face-to-face. The feeling of missing out can also be dramatically multiplied when the entire workspace and career opportunities are at a person’s fingertips.

So how do we rehumanize our workplaces and boost empathy in the age of accelerating technological progress?

Our speakers will cover the following topics:

Annie Yu Chief of Staff at Vox Media
Sandra Healy CEO at inclusio, Founding Director of the DCU Centre of Excellence for Diversity and Inclusion
Wei-Li Chong U.S. President of MindGym
Scott Domann Chief People Officer at Calm
