Lecture series: The future of work

the future of work

Rapid technological advance­ments, demographic changes, societal shifts in values, and other forces are dramatically re-shaping the world of work. But what will the future of work hold?

Join us for the Digital Society Initiative Lecture Series The Future of Work, in which academics and policymakers explore different aspects of how the world of work will look in the future.


We will discuss how increased gig work is shaping the labor market, and how digitalization is changing humanitarian work at organizations like the Red Cross. We will see evidence as to why doomsday pictures of the future of work are wrong, and how fundamentally human skills such as humor and time use shape success for leaders and employees in the future of work. All interested are invited to participate in the events free of charge. On-site childcare will be provided on prior demand.
