About this event

Embodiment For a Kinder Society

Amidst the big shifts and increasing separation in our society, kindness has the power to bring us in closer connection to each other and our planet beyond any differences we might have in our opinions, background, or history. Embodiment, when done right, let's you experience the world from someone else's perspective. From the empathy that creates, kindness can become a compassionate choice.

Kindness is a word often abused by influencers and in a lot of contexts has lost meaning and depth. At the same time we see, with a heavy heart, people being tired, burned out, scared, and society shifting at light warp speeds. And tragically, technology, rather than being seen as a helper and a way out, is seen as the reason for the decline of ‘kindness’ in our everyday lives. We want to explore and experience with you how a very different reality can be constructed.

To dive deeper into this topic from the lens of Transformative Tech, this meetup will bring you not just inspiration from outstanding keynote speakers, but also the opportunity to try out some tech experiences for yourself.

Here is the program for the event:

2:30pm – 3:00pm: Welcome to the Deloitte Studio

3:00pm – 4:00pm: Thought-provoking keynote speakers

  • Domna Banakou (Postdoc at EVENT-LAB, Barcelona) shares her latest research on embodiment in VR
  • Eren Aksu (Senior Manager for Digital Reality) explains how Deloitte use VR for building ‘Enduring Human Capabilities’
  • Parul Wadhwa (Creative Director for Emerging Media) talks about her experience in creating immersive stories
  • Sara Polak (Archaeologist in AI and Cloud Civilisations researcher) boldly explores the intersection space between tech and future societies that are founded on human values

4:00pm – 6:00pm: Networking + demo experiences for kindness in Deloitte Xperience Lab

We look forward to seeing you personally this time in the Deloitte Studio,

Hanka & Thomas & Lubos & Sara
