The Scholars podcast is a show featuring scholars from the General Sir John Monash Foundation. Host Justin Kelly interviews the best, brightest, boldest and bravest across all fields of academia, business, science, humanities, and the arts. In this episode, Justin speaks to 2021 Scholar and Solicitor Holli Sargeant.

Holli Sargeant is a solicitor committed to the lawful design and deployment of emergent technologies, such as artificial intelligence in corporate and government decision-making. She holds a Bachelor of Laws with first class Honours and a Bachelor of International Relations from Bond University. Holli has worked at Herbert Smith Freehills as a founding member of its Digital Law Group and undertaken a secondment to the Australian Human Rights Commission’s Human Rights and Technology project.

In this episode, Holli speaks with Justin about passion for ensuring that artificial intelligence does not entrench discrimination or bias and her journey from the sugarcane fields of Bundaberg QLD to discover the world through her work in law.
