On January 22, 2024, we officially launched the MIT Shaping the Future of Work Initiative. This event brought together policymakers, practitioners and scholars in dialogue about key issues for the future of work.
Three panel discussions explored the following questions:
- What role can worker representatives play in the direction of technology?
- How can AI be used for social good?
- What type of work do we want in the future?
Speakers included: Katherine Cramer, Brian Deese, Daniel Huttenlocher, Karin Kimbrough, Frank McCourt, Ziad Obermeyer, Nick Romeo, Liz Shuler, Kathleen Thelen, and Zeynep Ton.
The event was held in-person at the MIT Samberg Conference Center, 50 Memorial Drive, Cambridge, MA and livestreamed. See agenda below.
