Are you concerned about the power and prejudice of #AI across your organisation?

June 5 @ 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM AEST

Free - $20.00
NSW Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Network
As HR leaders, we have long been preoccupied with the future ramifications of AI, particularly the evolving skill requirements, potential job displacement, and possibility of universal basic income.
However, the pressing challenge is in the present.  AI has already been integrated into many existing HR systems across the whole employee lifecycle.  Which means your existing systems may harbour hidden biases capable of subtly influencing decision-making and shaping outcomes.
Therefore, there is a real urgency for HR professionals to be familiar with a new technical landscape.
For instance, did you know:
* AI may exacerbate the existing talent shortage and compromise Australia’s unique cultural diversity profile?
* The difference between contaminated and synthetic data, why it matters, and the potential risks associated with using and creating it?
However, AI can also be leveraged to power our DEIB strategies.
When humans bring their unique intelligence and partner with Artificial Intelligence, organisations have the power to enhance our DEIB strategies and increase diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging.
Whether you’re new or seasoned in the HR & AI journey, please join the AHRI NSW DEI Committee to explore the current research, and practical considerations for DEI, from industry experts Dr Muneera Bano, Dr Juliet Bourke GAICD and Siobhan Savage.
We’ll overview:
  • The HR tech / AI landscape and key considerations in responsible data management
  • The key leadership role HR needs to play in creating a diverse, equitable and inclusive future, for everyone equally.
  • What HR needs to know and do, across the different stages of the HR / AI journey and across the whole employee lifecycle.
Target Audience  
HR Practitioners of all career levels and roles will benefit from attending this forum.
