Description:The world is changing, and that change is being driven by intelligent, data-fueled technologies. They are evolving the way we behave in our homes, public places, vehicles, work spaces, and with respect to our bodies, pastimes, associates, and professional roles. While we’re already experiencing the undeniable benefits of new tech, it is critical that we diligently anticipate bad uses and poor outcomes too. Where technologies can express bias, detect emotion, spread misinformation, shepherd choice, and assist with serious decisions relating to everything from health to hiring, it is critical we have a free and open conversation about their impact on all our lives. This talk will examine some of the key ethical concerns dominating current conversations about tech, as well as AI's impact on the future of HR.

Description:Determining the president’s compensation is one of the core fiduciary duties of a college or university governing board, but the process frequently occurs with little to no guidance or support from HR. This is an increasingly challenging responsibility with laws and regulations that provide guidance, but also constraint. Plus, knowing the decision will be made public to the government, media, faculty, students, parents and donors can create even more pressure. Learn how HR can provide guidance on the applicable laws and regulations, and effective practices governing boards can use to make sure compensation is fair, competitive and will stand up to public scrutiny. HR professionals who have a greater awareness of these laws, regulations and practices will be better able to provide support on this critical issue.
