Robots are Coming:
Tatyana Fertelmeyster, MA, LCPC
Robots are coming. Some people are super excited about it. Some are super anxious. Others are not paying attention, at least not yet.
According to the McKinsey Global Institute's recent report Jobs Lost, Jobs Gained: Workforce Transitions in a Time of Automation - “As machines perform a wider range and variety of tasks, individuals will need to put more focus on developing the skills that humans excel at. The activities in nearly all occupations will change, with more time spent on those activities that require social and emotional skills, team work and collaboration, creativity, and higher levels of communication and logical reasoning”.
What’s inclusion got to do with it? Our workplaces are becoming increasingly diverse. While diversity is simply a fact of life, inclusion is a behavioral choice. Learning how to be intentionally inclusive is not just about making it easier for somebody else to work with you. It is about developing and strengthening the set of skills humans need not be replaced by robots. Also, people who are more open to embracing differences with curiosity are usually more agile when it comes to changes and transitions.
This session will concentrate on what is ahead for EAP professionals if we don’t want to be replaced by robots.
1. (Re)define tolerance, diversity, and inclusion
2. Appraise inclusion as a set of practical skills
3. Integrate well-being with inclusion in their EAP practice
