Hacks/Hackers LDN is proud to be growing and developing offerings to our community. In addition to the monthly meetup, we also love to work on other projects - whether collaborating with other organisations or individuals or just out on our own. Here are some of the exciting things we’ve brought to our members over the last year…
In January 2019 we kicked off the year with something a bit different. Our usual meetup format was replaced with a workshop from Liberating Structures. With a focus on collaboration and networking, everyone was up on their feet and getting involved.
Keep an eye out for more workshops coming soon.
My So-Called Career
Parental Leave workshop
In September 2019 we ran a workshop for parents of babies and young children and parents to be in journalism and tech facilitated by return-to-work expert, Jessica Chivers.
To make sure that parents of babies and young children could attend, childcare was provided onsite for everyone who needs it. It was a resounding success and we hope to develop more projects of this kind next year
- launch of AI in Journalism report
This special Hacks/Hackers LDN meetup, focussed entirely on the intersection of journalism and artificial intelligence (AI).
We hosted the launch of the Journalism AI report, the result of a one-year collaboration between Polis – the journalism think-tank at the London School of Economics and Political Science – and the Google News Initiative.
Parenting and Working during the Pandemic
After a challenging time for all in year of Covid-19, we held a panel discussion around the juggling act of parenting and working during the pandemic.
Led by the wonderful Kirstie Brewer and with a great carefully selected panel, it was a frank and honest discussion which proved cathartic and helpful for the large number of attendees from the Hacks/Hackers LDN community.
