- What’s a bank and why do we need it? – discussion about the changes in attitudes about retail banking, why it exists and how it may change.
- Designing for Wellbeing – what’s the corporate responsibility? – exploration of a company’s responsibility to design for wellbeing and review of case studies in designs that achieve wellbeing.
- Design for All: Inclusivity & Diversity – how might we ensure that we do not design bias into the AI we create and begin to break down walls of structural racism, creating pathways for diversity and inclusion?
