Future of Work 3x55

This three-part series explores monumental changes in the workplace and the long-term impact on workers, employers, educators and communities. Will the future provide opportunities for jobs that sustain families and the nation?

Episode 1 – The New Industrial Revolution

This episode illuminates disruptions to the world of work–AI, robotics, globalization and labor practices. The COVID-19 pandemic was a new driver of change; at the pandemic’s height, unemployment flipped from its lowest rate in 50 years to its highest level in a century.

Episode 2 – Futureproof

How can we predict job growth, training needs and the role of education in order to prepare for the work of the future? What are the challenges and consequences of the pandemic, and of America’s racial and economic disparities?

Episode 3 – Changing Work, Changing Workers

Do businesses need offices? Is a 9-to-5 workday valid? Does the nation need a drastic rethinking of the social safety nets? Does America face a “post-work” era, or will there be increased inequities in how we make our livings?
