Name: Future of Work Community Conversation Event #1
Date: September 18, 2019
Time: 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM EST
Event Description:

Australia’s workforce – and, by extension, its economy – is on the brink of massive change. Digital technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, high-tech robotics and the Internet of Things are disrupting and displacing human labour at an accelerating rate. 

The workers of today and tomorrow face uncertainty about job security. It is imperative that communities, educators, policy makers and employers think carefully about how to prepare workers for the new future of work and take action before it’s too late.

Individuals also need to consider how best to prepare, and parents need to consider education and career options for their children for the future.

KEY TAKEOUTS 

 - How do individuals/workers best prepare for the future of work?

 - Digital and technological skills are critical in this new future for Australian workers, businesses, education and training, and the wider economy.

 - Businesses need to invest in employees to grow their skills, competencies and know-how so that they thrive in the digital, automated future
