Technology for Good: How YOU are the bridge to our future | Nish Parkar | TEDxBath

Innovative technology can be a force for good but are we doing all we can to recognise the route of the problems we’re seeing to solve with technological developments. How can we bridge the gap? What more can we do to address the problems by sharing the capacity for technology to make a change? Ensuring we steer the direction of technology and don’t become the servants of the advances we’ve achieved is at the heart of the issue. How will your next choice make a difference? Nish has a special connection with the city of Bath since she graduated from the University of Bath School of Management in 2016. Since then, she has made a significant impact through her work in the Technology industry, and currently works as a Technology Communications Manager at Cisco Systems.
In an industry that struggles to attract diverse talent, Nish is one of few female millennials, and is passionate about People and Culture. She actively promotes Women in Technology and STEM in schools and colleges, and her always-inclusive mindset affirms that we can all be the bridge to what’s possible. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
