Is the future of work here? As highlighted in the recent AI and Workforce white paper, technological advances like artificial intelligence are accelerating changes in the workforce and raising concerns about workplace disruption. Against this backdrop, the global response to COVID-19 has wrought unprecedented unemployment over an incredibly short timeframe while racial unrest has brought issues of workplace diversity to the forefront. As policymakers, stakeholders, and companies look to address the rapid changes in society, this moment represents an opportunity to advance creative ideas to help the workforce grow and thrive.
Join us for a conversation on how to help the workforce of the future and get answers to questions like: Are the persistent calls for a skills-based approach to employment more important than ever? What role does lifelong learning play? Are there new tools available that promote a focus on skills? How can workers thrive in the AI-driven economy?
