While balancing motherhood and two careers, Helene went on to spearhead workshops guiding people that were considering financial careers on how to determine if their hearts and minds were in fact dedicated to this path. It was this experience that served as a wake-up-call for Helene that her oneTRUEzone is to reach out to the many young adults needing help in making college count, and in finding a career that will truly make them happy.As a compelling public speaker, Helene has given numerous motivational talks in educational and corporate settings on topics ranging from career planning to high finance. In light of Helene’s many successes, she remains modest and down to earth, and is very well respected in her community. Her genuine concern for the well being of the individual is her ever-present guiding light and passion. Her warmth and enthusiasm enable her to unlock the yearnings of young people, and help them find their oneTRUEzone.

Unpacking the AI Hype

Suddenly, science fiction seems to be coming off the page and screen and into our offices and lives. We're told AI will take away our jobs, or it will free us from the burdens of work. Systems are built to reduce human bias, yet in many areas bias remains or gets worse. If it all feels overwhelming, or you're not sure where to start, this session will get you up to speed with a brief primer, then we'll pivot to a case study before wrapping with a Q&A to crowdsource ideas on the future we want to make.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  1. Deepened understanding of what AI and related technologies, are and are not
  2. Awareness of social and ethical issues arising from advances in AI and related tech
  3. Ability to apply 1 & 2 to personal, office, and institutional decision making

Chris Miciek, Director, Career Development Center, Jefferson University

Chris began with an executive coaching firm before returning to higher education. In 2002 he began building the first 100% online career center in the US, pioneering online technology and social media to deliver career development advising and instruction. Since that start he's presented at state and regional ACEs as well as NACE on online career services and emerging technology, including creating a keynote panel at MWACE 2007 and leading a NACE President's Tech Summit at the 2009 annual conference. Chris authored a chapter to the NACE Case Study Guide on delivering career development online and co-authored a chapter on navigating institutional mergers. He continues to stare at the horizon.
