Ringvorlesung Digital Society Initiative (DSI)
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? In the Digital Society Initiative Lecture Series “The Future of Work”, academics and policymakers explore different aspects of how the world of work will look in the future. They discuss how increased gig work is shaping the labor market, and how digitalization is changing humanitarian work at organizations like the Red Cross. They present 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.
The lectures include ample time for discussion and allow for informal exchange with the guest speakers and other participants at the apéros offered after the lectures.
Events are open to the public and free of charge. On-site childcare will be available
on prior request. All interested are cordially invited.
