This is the eighth in a series of Agile Lean Coffees run by Aginext and the Digital Leadership Meetup. These are free, monthly, virtual ways to talk about certain topics and safely discuss your experiences. Who better to help us with our virtual lean coffees than remote maven Judy Rees?! Judy (https://www.linkedin.com/in/judyrees/) will be joining us as a special guest coffee drinker to talk on this Guy Fawkes day about what betrays many teams — remote and hybrid meetings. We will be self-organising around topics including the power of flexible work, how agile and lean rituals translate to the remote working world, how to improve remote/distributed meetings and other communication, how to build trust when you're not face-to-face every day, and anything else you want to talk about! Lean Coffee is a facilitated, but agenda-less meeting. Our participants gather, build an agenda of conversation-starting questions — and start discussing. Conversations are directed and productive because the agenda for the meeting was democratically selected. We do ten-minute topic timeboxes, and then vote thumbs up or down if we want to continue for another five minutes. **We will close signups and send out the Zoom link to all signups about an hour before the event. And we will also send out the link to start brainstorming and adding your topics so we can get quickly into voting and discussing. Please consider adding your topics before. Thank you to the tool Lean Coffee Table for allowing us free use: https://leancoffeetable.com This is part of a series of activities that Aginext.io is sponsoring as we look to bridge the gaps between our conferences and to build a proper accelerated agile community. Anyone who joins our lean coffees can also be invited to our exclusive agile-minded Slack community. Our flagship conference Aginext is on Thur 19- Fri 20 March 2020, and the call for speakers is open! Aginext is a two-day conference dedicated to all things advanced agile and beyond including culture at scale, agile at scale, agile leadership and just what's next! https://2020.aginext.io/speak-at-aginext/

The computer educated and literates have populated IT departments and benefited from the rise of the digital economy. Though most of them would probably not realise it, they have enjoyed a privileged position for the past two decades. This is the nature of a privilege, it is hard to appreciate. In the meantime, other demographics have not had the same luck and many found themselves on the outside of this booming industry for being the wrong gender, ethnic, or lifestyle. They have been the "prejudiced" of the early digital age. As enterprises are looking to be more inclusive, we are now seeing diversity targets for gender and/or ethnicity. Is this the right way of addressing this challenge? As competition is intensifying, it is not just about delivering digital software anymore, but about innovating with it. Innovation stems from diverse thinking, as well as backgrounds and groundings. Diversity will be the fuel of innovation in the next era of digital. Assembling a team will be alchemy for innovation to prosper. Does this mean that the once privileged will become prejudiced and vice-versa? Most HR departments are establishing ratios and targets for diversity. Though the intention has to be saluted, this approach also results in unintended consequences. Is it the right approach or a necessary one? Is real diversity on another level altogether that we will aim to explore that evening? Diversity is a complex topic and we will not aim to solve it in an evening, but look to create more awareness, and from this establish if diversity can be approached in a better way by enterprises and all of us in our daily work. We will use large scale systemic facilitation techniques to get all the voices heard and provide an experiential approach to this very worthy topic. We are also planning to have a few guest speakers talking about their challenges with a view to raise better awareness and stimulate the discussion. Please join in numbers as it will be one of the most interesting session all year.
