​The arrival of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the domination of technology are restructuring everything about our world, including how we access, engage in, and relate to work. The labor markets are increasingly privatized, digitized, and corporatized, leaving control in the hands of a few. So, who gets to determine the rules of the game? 

The Social Innovation + Change Initiative invites you to join Palak Shah, Beck Visiting Social Innovator and Social Innovations Director at the National Domestic Workers Alliance, for a highly participatory dialogue that explores this question and moves the needle forward in advancing a 21st-century framework that centers workers. This conversation will provide important context on the evolution of the labor markets and the urgent challenges that require redefining who has control, how decisions are made, and what will be the future of work. Participants will be asked to offer thought partnership and contribute multi-disciplinary perspectives on how to build a fair, just, and equitable system for all.

This conversation will especially interest participants with experience and/or interest in technology innovation, policy interventions, workers’ rights, and labor market economics. SICI and Palak would welcome a proposal from a PAE group or student(s) interested in pursuing an independent study or research project on these questions.
