The Future of Work Part 1: ShiftLabs: Exploiting the Power of Communities and Innovation to Prepare the Workforce for the Future
What kind of work will people do in five, ten, and twenty years? What are the best ways to empower workers with skills and connect them to opportunity? How will the future of work transform our communities? Through ShiftLabs, New America is partnering with five pilot communities to prepare for a future of automation and foster innovation in workforce development. Bringing together leaders from technology, industry, policy, philanthropy and culture, ShiftLabs is harnessing each city’s strengths to catalyze social innovation to address automation. Molly Martin will share what has been learned so far, and what learning.
