Let’s finally demystify the jargon and gain the knowledge and assurance needed to drive digitally focused inclusion efforts forward. 

But what exactly is Human-centred Computing?

How can you effectively integrate this and other digital methodologies within your organisation? These are just a few of the compelling topics that will be explored at this enlightening event on 17 April 2024.
