Coming to Spacecubed monthly, TechTalks brings together innovative individuals from across Perth to discuss the larger issues relating to the tech industry. This month, we’ll be joined by experts at Gaia Resources, Scitech and Uno Group to discuss ‘Tech for Good - How To Drive Impact at Scale?’

As a vibrant coworking space, we are exposed daily to examples of the amazing ways in which companies big and small are trying to leverage technology to make positive impacts on our society. But with the continuing growth allowing for more innovation than ever - how can we ensure we harness this power for good?

During this discussion, we’ll hear the panellist thoughts on if open-source data is a viable option for collaboration, if "tech giants" are reinforcing the ways our social and political systems privilege some groups over others, and if we are preparing for a future of work where technical expertise coexists with empathy, humility, and perseverance.

Our panellists include:
