AI - Threat or Opportunity? - An Introduction For Charities

A new online course for anyone in the charity sector who is AI curious and would like to start using generative AI in their day-to-day role or introduce it into their team’s systems and processes.

Why come?

We’ll spend a day together immersing ourselves in the rapidly evolving world of AI.

Together we’ll get comfortable with what it is (and what it isn’t). We’ll delve into the many ethical questions that surround the technology and think through how they apply to your role and organisation. And we’ll go beyond theory to look at how charities are using generative AI in practice as well as testing out some generative AI tools ourselves.

Through a mix of presentation, group discussion and practical exercises we’ll cover the essentials for using generative AI in your business as usual.

Who should attend?

Anyone in the charity sector who is AI curious and would like to start using generative AI in their day-to-day role or introduce it into their team’s systems and processes.

We’ll touch on organisational policy, but our focus is on how you can use AI in an ethical way to help you in your day-to-day role.
