The Future of Work: 90-Minute Conversation w/ Optional 30-Minute Q & A with Hosts!
July 25, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDT
The Future of Work
July 25, 2019 @ 7:00 – 9:00 pm ET / 4:00 – 6:00 pm PT (adjust for your time zone)
For huge numbers of people, jobs provide income and a sense of purpose. We are fast approaching a time when artificial intelligence and robots will be trusted do a better job than humans at everything from driving to diagnosing medical conditions and more. But our economy is structured to thrive with a robust engaged workforce. What happens when the nature and number of jobs change substantially? Do we have more leisure time to enjoy our families, contribute to our community and deepen our creative and spiritual practices? Do we find a way to share the benefits of these technological advances or does homelessness and poverty grow? If we think together now can we create a future we all want to embrace?
Here is the conversation guide. Some of the questions explored include:
- What is important about working? Or is it important?
- What types of work do you think people will do in the next 50 years?
- If we had the same or better productivity with people spending half as much time doing paid work, what would you hope to see happening in your community and in this country?
You will need a device with a webcam to participate (preferably a computer or tablet rather than a cell phone).
