As part of its 2018 Community Summit, Brave New Work, SFU Public Square is proud to present, in partnership with Vancity, an evening with Van Jones and Anne-Marie Slaughter.
Automation, artificial intelligence, and globalization are changing the nature of work and what we do to earn a living. While some look to these changes to improve our quality of life, others foresee worker displacement and increased inequality. Many of us are struggling to understand what actions we can take as individuals and as a society to thrive, or at least survive, in the new world of work.
Van Jones and Anne-Marie Slaughter, two leading commentators on the American economy, discuss the role that citizens, governments and civil society can play in shaping the future of work. They will explore the challenges ahead, as well as how these challenges might be addressed through green jobs, emergent industries, education and public policy. Join us for an important conversation on making sure that the future of work can work for us.
Moderator: CBC journalist Laura Lynch.
