Description

The Future of Work

Automation and globalization are shrinking the number of good, well-paying jobs. What's a person to do? What's society to do?

This lecture will offer practical advice for everyone--from people starting out, to older people wanting to stay relevant in a changing economy. Career Coach Marty Nemko will address a range of best-, moderate-, and worst-case scenarios for how the reduction in good jobs will play out. He will also propose a bold, but practical blueprint for what society and each of us individually can do to maximize the chances of that best-case scenario occurring.

About the speaker:

Marty Nemko is host of the weekly radio program Work with Marty Nemko on KALW-FM. Called "career coach extraordinare" by U.S. News and World Report, he has written extensively on career topics for national media, published nine books, and spent six years as a columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle. Nemko says his ideas about work are strongly shaped by his real-life experiences over the years as a career and personal coach to over 5,000 people. He holds a Ph.D. from U.C. Berkeley in educational psychology specializing in the evaluation of innovation.
