A discussion about the impact of AI on people with disabilities during the hiring process with Susan Scott Parker, Business Disability International.
Dates:January 19, 2021
Time:1:00 – 2:00 p.m. ET
Location: Virtual via WebEx
The National Business & Disability Council (NBDC) at The Viscardi Center presents the January session of Office Hours with John D. Kemp, President/CEO of The Viscardi Center. The monthly topic-driven, video calls feature an informal discussion with a leader or expert and champion for the disability community. On January 19, John will be joined by Susan Scott-Parker OBE, of Business Disability International, an internationally recognized creative thought leader on how to mobilize business leadership worldwide behind the economic and social inclusion of people with disabilities.
Although artificial intelligence is often marketed as an objective tool, it can be yet another barrier to securing employment for people with disabilities. During this Office Hours, we’ll explore:
- Applicant tracking systems (ATS) and whether or not they are equal for all applicants.
- Resume screeners and how these systems may not have been trained on data or writing styles of users with diverse cognitive and intellectual abilities.
- Facial analysis software assessment and how they may be discriminatory.
- Conversational agents, also known as chatbots.
Come with an open mind and your questions, as we will have time for Q&A.
Mark your calendar! NBDC’s Office Hours will take place the third Tuesday of each month, from 1:00 – 2:00 pm ET. Closed Captioning will be provided for every session.
