Out in Tech Amsterdam | AI for Good: Myth or Reality?

March 25 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join our tech LGBTQIA+ community in the Netherlands for an AI-themed panel discussion accompanied by a gezellig get-together!

Out in Tech is the world’s largest non-profit community of LGBTQ+ tech leaders, creating opportunities for our 45,000 members to advance their careers, grow their networks, and leverage tech for social change – and we’re growing our chapter in Amsterdam!

We are keen to invite you to join us for a thought-provoking exploration into the realms of AI ethics and practices led by panellists from our community! Let’s scratch our hands and “hmm” together while discussing what AI means and can be for LGBTQIA+ people.

We asked our panellists to let go and use this opportunity to share something they usually hesitate to share. So it might get spicy 🌶️

About our speakers:

  • Lian Li (She/They). Lian always wanted to save the world. After dropping out of law school, she decided to work with computers instead. While in Web Development, she started attending and speaking at tech events on the topic of machine learning, and soon fell in love with the tech community. For a year, Lian worked in a startup, building an AI solution for curated newsfeeds. Since then, Lian combined technical knowledge with an understanding of the human condition in her roles as Developer, Consultant, and Developer Advocate. Currently, Lian lives in Amsterdam, where she serves as Tech Lead for the CNCF TAG app-delivery. She can also be seen on stage at various English-speaking musical theatre productions, doing standup comedy and improv theatre. “Any solution is only as good as your framing of the problem”, this is what we need to keep in mind when applying AI.
  • Masuma Shahid (She/Her). Lecturer and researcher in the field of LGBTQ+ rights at the Erasmus School of Law in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. In her latest research, she researched the positive and negative ways in which AI applications have affected the LGBTQ+ community. “Although the development of AI may improve the lives of many, it brings significant risks to the lives of LGBTQ+ people specifically that need to be addressed immediately by developers and regulators.”
  • Nico Nosal (She/They). Researcher and Strategist who once led all Insights at Polaroid and now helps tech-for-good start-ups leverage AI in topics like sustainability, accessibility or research. “AI is like electricity! It makes great things possible, but without regulation and oversight, it’s bound to shock and burn!”
  • Sandra Heinzen (She/Her). Innovation Design Lead at Salesforce. Blending 16+ years in design and innovation with a zest for AI and speculative business design she is shaping futures for financial services companies at Salesforce. From frog design to financial futurism, her mission is to democratize AI, making it a tool for empowerment and change. “AI for good isn’t a myth; it’s the reality we’re crafting. It’s about amplifying human potential and breaking boundaries — and I’m here for it.”

We are looking forward to seeing everyone there!
