Forging the Gap Between Educational Institutions and Industry: Future of Work in a Rapidly Evolving Workplace and Advancing Technological Innovation Environment
The rise of AI and Automation is changing the work landscape as we know it. As technology advances, the modern worker, along with their education and skillsets, will need to adapt to stay employable. In the current COVID-19 environment, one question stands out: will the pandemic lead to an acceleration or deceleration in the race towards automation? And further, is our current education system incompatible with rapidly changing industries and the necessary training to support the evolving modern worker in rapidly changing workplace environments and norms? Hear from business, academic and workforce leaders about how we can break down the silos between campus learning and real-world learning and move toward an ecosystem of collaboration that includes educational institutions, civil society, employers, and governments.
