Future of work: automation, robotics and what it all means for diversity and inclusion (Preliminary notice)

At our next Diversity Leadership Program event, we are exploring the future of work through the lens of diversity and inclusion (D&I).

Automation and artificial intelligence (AI) is delivering new and improved services to us all but what are the knock-on effects and implications for workplaces and workers?

By 2030, according to a recent McKinsey Global Institute report, Jobs lost, jobs gained: Workforce transitions in a time of automation, as many as 375 million workers—or roughly 14 percent of the global workforce—may need to switch occupational categories.

Automation is replacing human tasks and jobs, and changing the skills that organisations are looking for in their people—and some of these changes are raising organisational, talent, and D&I challenges.

We will ask how business can ensure that D&I is taken into account in the design and implementation of new technologies, and what it all means for HR professionals planning their D&I strategies into the future to capitalise on opportunities?

Facilitated by DCA CEO Lisa Annese, our expert panel will include:

  1. Kylie Walker, CEO Science & Technology Australia
  2. Lyn Goodear, CEO AHRI
  3. Kylie Owen, Global People and Culture Leader, HR at Cisco Australia
  4. Will Judge, Head of Social Robotics, Commonwealth Bank

Invitations with final details will be forwarded shortly to all DCA email subscribers (Click here to sign up for emails)
