The nature of work is constantly evolving. The pace of change will only accelerate in the years ahead, presenting new opportunities and challenges for the workforce as a whole, but especially for underrepresented groups and women. These transformations will continue to displace many workers, eliminating their jobs and requiring them to learn new skills. These transformations will also create other jobs and entire new industries we have yet to imagine; they will liberate us from rote tasks, increasing our productivity and leaving us time to explore our creativity and full potential.
In this session, we explore how advancements in technology are shaping this future, and how STEAM education can equip us to exist and advance in this new environment.
