What Is the Future of Work?

12:30 p.m. | Wednesday, October 11, 2017

What does the future hold for how we work? A comprehensive report recently authored by New America and Bloomberg — informed through countless conversations with people across all walks of life and innumerable hours of background research — sought to answer that question as the influence of automation, “taskification” and shifting job centers becomes ever-present. Come hear their findings and engage in a round of scenario planning as we seek to identify the possible future of work in America. Co-presented by New America CA.
