What are the Future Good Jobs in Tech?

Evening Forum

Join SPUR and the Kapor Center this spring for a three-part series about how tech can be done right. In part one of the conversation, we’ll talk about how the tech sector’s push for automation is changing the nature of work on a regional and global level. This trend can be a force for increased quality of life if done right, but it often brings unintended consequences, including increased unemployment, underemployment and a growing wealth gap. What are some of the future good jobs in tech and how do we make sure local residents are not left behind? Co-presented by the Kapor Center.
