The Future of Work is an INET webinar series that brings together diverse voices to discuss the impact of technology on the economy and society.
As technology continues to disrupt industries globally, the nature and future of work will be impacted by decisions and policies being made today. What are the social costs and benefits that technology will bear on economies already transformed by globalization and what are the implications to labor markets and social welfare? Can we get ahead of the next transformational revolution?
