We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who joined us for our event, Humans vs Tech: Building connections in today’s hybrid world. It was wonderful to discuss such thought-provoking topics with you all!
On Thursday 6th October, we were joined by over 80 people at Loopin HQ for an incredible event to discuss the role of technology in today’s hybrid world.
As well as connecting with the Bristol tech community, learning something new, and getting to eat great pizza, our primary objective was to ensure our event was diverse and inclusive. An event that is true to our brand's mission, values, and ethos.
So, with great determination to create a welcoming environment where everyone could be themselves, here's how we did just that:
✨ An interactive session about accessibility and what to consider when building tech that's accessible
✨ Talks that covered neurodiversity, autism, and mental health
✨ A diverse lineup of speakers, each with different stories and perspectives to share
✨ Pronoun stickers if people wished to wear them
✨ A meditation session to unite everyone as one and to allow people to really detach from their busy days
✨ Speaker pronouns included on introductory slides
✨ Discussion panel that allowed the audience to participate and have their thoughts and voices heard
We’re super proud of the efforts we went to and the team were busy taking notes throughout to do even better next time.
We’d like to dish out a few thankyou’s… 👨🍳

To the team at Oscar Tech, it’s been so great collaborating with you on this event! It was so much fun to finally meet in person and share a drink and slice of pizza.

We’ll leave you with one final piece of gold that is now pinned in the Loopin team’s Slack channel.
Event attendee and artist, Molly, shared these amazing sketch notes to social media. We loved this visual takeaway of everything Molly loved about Ben’s talk. Check out We Are Human to see even more awesome work from Molly.
