PMEL – Inspiring and Connecting Session

  • Date and time 30 June 2022, 15:00 - 16:30 CET
  • Where through ZOOM
  • For whom PMEL Officers of all levels

To the attention of PMEL officers of all levels: Partos will host an inspiring and connecting session on impact-oriented working on June 30 from 15:00 until 16:30 CET (16:00 – 17:30 EAT, or the equivalent time wherever you may be that day).

By organising this session, we hope to connect you with fellow PMEL officers of diverse backgrounds and inspire you to learn from one another by becoming a member of the Partos PMEL Teams platform.  We are especially curious to learn about your interests and expectations with respect to this platform, so we can jointly breathe new life into this community of inspiring, knowledgeable PMEL officers.

The platform provides opportunities for PMEL officers in international development cooperation to interact, share lessons learned and brilliant failures, and discuss common challenges. It serves as an online space where PMEL officers can interact as a community. 

The Bias Brothers: the role of cognitive biases in working towards social impact

During this session, we will surprise you with an inspiring lecture on impact-oriented working. Do you believe that the use of data is the solution to create more social impact? Watch out that you don’t fall for the automation bias! How is it possible that working with ‘objective’ data can still be biased? Or that this data gives way to a bias in your decision-making and behavior?

Would you like to learn what this is about? You can! During this session, the Bias Brother will give you a taste of the effect of so-called cognitive biases. After the lecture, you are more aware of the influence of biases on your work with data. To make it stick, you will experience a few biases that are relevant to your work towards social impact.

Lukas and Martin are The Bias Brothers. Their mission is to bring the interesting and complex matter of cognitive biases to the work floor in an understandable and fun way. They do this by providing training, lectures, workshops, and business coaching to people in organizations. The Bias Brothers offer you this lecture as part of the Up to Data community. The community creates awareness of the demands that contemporary use of data and technology puts on people. Knowledge of the workings of the brain and consciousness is an important element of this awareness. Check out their website for more information on their work!
