Do not get stuck ...

Quote by Mandy Hale

Constant and fast change was one of the key topics in my Digital Transformation school workshop today. 28 participants, 22 girls and just 6 boys (all age 17 - 19) in their last school year. Great to see so many girls, as the STEM area (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, including Computer Science) needs much more female influence.

When only men do the machine learning and education for Artificial Intelligence, we will be missing out the influence and expertise of ~50% of the population and build in male prejudices and biases (sometimes unnoticed or even intentionally). Something we have to be aware of and need to change quickly.

The two main areas of concern of the kids in the moment are COVID-19 (no real surprise) and the climate change. It was school, climate protection and a better internt connection 2 years ago. 39% rated my workshop with 5/5 stars, another 50% with 4/5 stars. A great result and perfect start of a sunny weekend 👍😎.

“If you learn to really sit with loneliness and embrace it for the gift that it is… an opportunity to get to know YOU, to learn how strong you really are, to depend on no one but YOU for your happiness… you will realize that a little loneliness goes a LONG way in creating a richer, deeper, more vibrant and colorful YOU.” -- taken from 65 Inspirational Mandy Hale  Quotes
