## The agenda

6.30 pm CEST

### Welcome & Get together

7.00 pm CEST

### Future of data-driven work

Karolina Stosio, Lead Data Scientist | Stepstone

The way we work changes faster than ever: on one hand, the AI revolution disrupts the job market, on the other, the COVID-19 pandemics disrupt our expectation of a workspace and work itself.

A steady 9-to-5 career for life is an artefact of the past. We will all change our highly mobile jobs within the next few years spending an average of 4 years with the same employer (Stepstone, 2017). Our next job position may not yet exist today, our couture position may be obsolete in the future. Yet one thing is clear: the future of work is data-driven. Which roles are and will be available in data-driven companies? What skills are in demand and will remain relevant? Which positions are going to disappear?

7.30 pm CEST

### Automating Privacy and Security in Pipelines

Katharine Jarmul, Principal Data Scientist | Thoughtworks

In this talk, we'll outline strategies for automating data privacy and security into your large scale data workflows. By walking through several concrete use cases and technologies, you'll learn where to insert these techniques and how to incorporate governance as part of your data architecture and system design. Finally, we'll investigate ways this can apply in a distributed data environment, like Data Mesh.
8.00 pm CEST
