Event description

Description

Big data, privacy breaches, artificial intelligence, social license...the world of digital transformation can feel like a minefield. This one-day course will give you a powerful briefing and hands-on insight into the high-profile, ethical challenges facing governments as they progress their digital transformations. It is taught by ThinkPlace’s Global Chief Digital Officer, Darren Menachemson, who will help you navigate the ethical complexities of transformation well.

You will learn

  • Important ethical concepts and paradigms for government digital transformations, and how to apply them

  • Ethical danger-zones in a digitally transformed world, including interactive case studies of where ethical blind-spots have resulted in governance failures

  • Social licence: what it is, and its implications for how you design programs, services and regulation

  • Algorithms, artificial intelligence, and how to navigating challenges like unintended bias and right to explanation, to deliver public good

  • Big data, little data, privacy, and the ‘ethics of knowing’

  • Dark strategies: the trust gap, how bad actors and bad design have widened it, and what it means for government

  • Case studies and compelling stories of how other OECD countries are tackling these challenges right now

  • Regulating the internet of things in bodies, cities and beyond

  • A framework for assessing the ethics of digital transformation initiatives (including a hands-on intensive where you get to use it on a realistic challenge)

You are a:

Senior executive or manager in a government agency (federal, state or local)

Senior executive or manager in a Transnational Governance Organisation (e.g. UN, OECD)

Duration:

1 day (plus 1.5 hours pre-reading and a post-course assignment)

This course includes an optional post-course assignment, which will be assessed, with feedback being provided to the participant.
