"From Stuck to Inspired: How to Design a Career That Fits"

When you feel aimless or dissatisfied in your career, it’s often because you have no idea what you’re looking for. Without a clear idea of what you want to do, you get antsy about leaving your job, focused on external measures of success and distracted by shiny jobs. How are you supposed to stop doing what you think is “right” in your career and start doing what’s right for you? If you’re not clear about what you want, there’s no way you can convey it to anyone else. Come learn how to stop falling into jobs based on circumstances and start making decisions intentionally that are right for you.

"How Do Algorithms Become Biased?"

There’s bias in algorithms - how does this happen? In this talk, we walk through a step by step example of building a prediction algorithm, focused on areas where bias could be inadvertently introduced. We then look at when algorithms were used to make biased decisions, and what we can do about it.
