The Future of Work: How Jobs and America are Changing
September 26 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
When you think about what’s next in your career, you might turn to LinkedIn to see what job openings are listed or what professionals in your network are posting. Or you could come to our Future of Work event and talk with the co-founder of LinkedIn himself, Allen Blue.
You’ll learn insights like this: more than 50 percent of the workforce may be unemployed in less than 20 years.
Understanding the future of work—what jobs will become extinct or get created, what skills will be in-demand, how education can address talent shortages—is crucial to positioning yourself for success. Because the future of work reflects our society in bluntly economic terms, it’s a fascinating, thrilling and unsettling topic.
This Future of Work community conversation will focus on possible solutions, based on trends seen in the workplace in the last half-century, and give insights about how to achieve them. Speakers include:
- Hari Sreenivasan, anchor of ‘PBS Newshour Weekend’ and a senior correspondent for the nightly program
- Allen Blue, co-founder and vice president of product management at LinkedIn
