Discussions

The agenda for Stream South Africa 2019 is in your hands. There are six session times a day, hosted in nine different meeting spaces. Each session runs for 1 hour (give or take) and all sessions are led by you, the Stream participants. Here's how it works:

  1. Before Stream - Share your idea - Create a New Discussion by clicking on the blue ‘add idea’ button on the left of this page
  2. Before Stream - Invite others to join you - you can see the participants list at the Participants page.
  3. At Stream - Book a slot - when you arrive on site, write your discussion on the Big Boards

The Stream team is on hand to help. Please get in touch if you'd like to talk an idea through before posting, or would like help finding some co-hosts.

Empathy (should) kill the demographic star

I recently wrote a blog on LinkedIn about the future being neither male nor female - but rather, HUMAN. We have become so obsessed with demographics, and so use to putting people in boxes & on scorecards. I would argue that this has created new forms of exclusion, rather than true inclusion. That's why many of us may at times feel too male, too old, too feminine, too young. Overcoming this will require an investment in true empathy - understanding individuals rather than demographic averages. Many might say this is a naive and unattainable ideal. I say it is increasingly becoming a leadership imperative towards true diversity, inclusion & growth potential.
