Join MIT for the official launch of the MIT Shaping the Future of Work Initiative, co-led by Daron Acemoglu, David Autor, and Simon Johnson, from 2:00-6:00 PM on January 22. This event will bring together policymakers, practitioners, and scholars in dialogue about key issues for the future of work.

Three panel discussions will explore the following questions:

  • What role can worker representatives play in the direction of technology?
  • How can AI and other technology be used for social good?
  • What type of work do we want in the future?

Confirmed speakers include: Katherine Cramer, Brian Deese, Daniel Huttenlocher, Karin Kimbrough, Frank McCourt, Ziad Obermeyer, Nick Romeo, Liz Shuler, Kathleen Thelen, and Zeynep Ton.

The event will be held in-person at the MIT Samberg Conference Center, 50 Memorial Drive, Cambridge, MA, and will be livestreamed. Updates will be posted here:
