The Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies and The Economist will organise on Thursday 02 November a conference about The Future of Work (Auditorium Ivan Pictet, Maison de la Paix, 17:00-19:30).
Rapid technological change will mean that, over the course of our working lives, many skills will become obsolete, others will grow in economic importance and traditional career trajectories will be a thing of the past. In a context of constant change, of robotics and of artificial intelligence, this event aims to answer the following question: is education a future-proof route to stable employment?
Ryan Avent, the moderator, is a Senior Editor and Economics Columnist at The Economist. With: - Richard Baldwin, Professor of International Economics, The Graduate Institute - Myriam Denk, Partner, Human Capital, Deloitte Switzerland - Shea Gopaul, Executive Director, Global Apprenticeships Network - Linda Kromjong, Secretary General, International Organization of Employers - Lawrence Jeff Johnson, Deputy director of the Research department, International Labor Organisation
