The Future of Work: Part 3

Monday, February 27, 2017

What is the future of jobs in the United States?

How do technology, immigration, and government policy impact the future of work?

Join us for The Future of Work: Part 3 on Tuesday, April 25, 2017 from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. Hosted by Einstein's Alley, the event will examine the significant changes in our workplace coming from technology, including robotics, artificial intelligence, immigration, and government policies. 

According to a recent McKinsey Global Institute study, "... Automation now has the potential to change the daily work activities of everyone, from miners and landscape gardeners to commercial bankers, fashion designers, welders—and CEOs."

How soon will this be a reality in your workplace? What will the impact be on employment and on productivity in the global economy? And when and how will it affect your enterprise?

Speakers include: 

  • Dr. David Mindell, Professor, MIT and CEO, Humatics
  • Dr. Don Sebastian, President, New Jersey Innovation Institute
  • Dr. Carl Van Horn, Distinguished Professor and Director, Heldrich Center for Workforce Development, Rutgers University
  • Dr. James Hughes, Dean, Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, Rutgers University

The event will be held in the Roosevelt-Perkins Room (second floor) at the Heldrich Center for Workforce Development, 30 Livingston Avenue, New Brunswick, NJ.

Light refreshments will be available. A period of networking and a cash bar will be available from 6:00 to 6:30 p.m.
