About this event

As we are getting closer to this year’s end, we want to celebrate our accomplishments by looking back and highlighting the worthiest stories in our community, stories about 'Automation for Good'. We gathered those projects that managed to make a direct impact into the lives of others and the general well being of our society. Our stories go beyond the primary benefits of automation, by diving deeper into greater missions, in a world where leaders are connected and influencing the world outside their organizations.

While listening to our visionary speakers, you'll learn how automation enterprises:

- can make more efficient the work of NGOs and volunteers management

- can scale the automation workforce through training and education while impacting new generations and their career chances

- can optimize the work of social workers while impacting directly children's livelihood

- can detect cases of human rights abuse, triggering direct action

These valuable insights will spur fruitful conversations about what automation can do for us all, and how we can harness the power of automation technology for good. We hope that the stories we bring to you on December 15 will manage to sketch a map of activism, kindness and contribution to our wider community, while leaving us with great best practice models to take forward.

📖 Here is our story book, to close this year with hope (EST hours):

10:10 ✨ 'TechEmpower Ghana: Bridging Futures through RPA Education and Employment'
Project Delivery: Ghana; Beneficiary: 'Trestle Academy Ghana'
The project aims to establish and support an educational and employment program for technology students and graduates in Ghana. The primary objective is to bridge the gap between education and employment by providing targeted training and development opportunities for individuals pursuing careers in the tech industry. By aligning educational efforts with practical employment prospects, the project aims to contribute to the growth and sustainability of the tech industry in Ghana while providing meaningful opportunities for aspiring tech professionals.

10:25✨ 'Foster Family application and Case Management'
Project Delivery: US, Florida; Beneficiary: 'Partnership For Strong Families'
Submitting applications for foster care licensing can be very time consuming because of the overwhelming amount of documentation required. Each application can contain over 80 or more document types. Multiple case workers perform checks on these documents and upload to state applications daily.
The developed UiPath solution intends to reduce the manual effort. The automation also intends to allow case workers to spend more time with children and find them a better family.

10:40 ✨ 'Volunteer Management Project'
Project Delivery: Nigeria; Beneficiary: 'Steering for Greatness Foundation'
The intention of the volunteer management project was to streamline and enhance the volunteer management process at Steering For Greatness . Our objective was to increase operational efficiency by automating the repetitive task of communicating with volunteers, allowing the organization to focus more on its core mission. By leveraging automation, the project aim was to achieve efficiency, save time, and ensure that the communication with selected volunteers is prompt and consistent, especially in scenarios where there is a need to communicate with a large number of candidates, ensuring a seamless and organized outreach process.

10:55 ✨ 'Empowering Indigenous Rights Advocacy through Automation and AI'
Project Delivery: Argentina, Beneficiary: 'Regional Coordinator of Economic and Social Research (CRIES)'
CRIES is a South American NGO that looks after the interests of indigenous communities in South America. They would like to automate the process of analyzing news articles from news outlets in South America to detect cases of human rights abuse against indigenous communities (e.g. oppression, violence, discriminatory laws). This will free up time from activists and researchers to focus on the real work of advocating for the interests of indigenous communities, instead of manually reviewing news articles every day. UiPath products used: Integration Service (OpenAI GPT-4, Google Docs connectors), UiPath Action Center (for review of analysis output), UiPath Apps (to present reviewed incidents), Orchestrator, Serverless Robots.

11:10 ✨ 'Costa Rica Student Hack-a-thon 2023'
Project Delivery: Costa Rica, Beneficiary: 'Professional Technical College Jesús Ocaña Rojas'
For 2 weeks we brought together 18 students from the high school, between the ages of 16 and 17. During these 2 weeks we trained them in different automations tools like UiPath Studio, Orchestrator, Action Center, Apps and some others. At the end of these 2 weeks, the students built a project that solved an issue from the High school or community. A total of 5 projects were presented with a high level of technical complexity. The feedback from students and teachers was overwhelmingly positive. Both groups agree the skills learned in these 2 weeks are going to make a big difference in their resume and future employment opportunities
