Event description

Description

What is Comm Lead Connects?

Comm Lead Connects is the UW Communication Leadership graduate program’s premier public event. For the last four years, professionals, advocates, and graduate students have gathered at the annual day-long event to engage with one another around a pressing issue of global consequence.

This Year’s Topic: The Future of Work - What it means for Communication & Leadership

Emerging technologies such as next-level automation, artificial intelligence, and an expanded internet of things promise to recast our work-lives. Many see great opportunities for increased creativity, collaboration, and efficiency. They talk of liberation from the mundane, global connection, and productivity that could exponentially raise standards of living and wellness levels. They point to potentially revolutionary advances already being made in collaborative technology, robotic process automation, and workplace efficiency.

On the other hand, each advance brings grave concerns. There are difficult conversations coming about the structure of work, and who gets to participate in defining its future. Further, how can we stop replicating in our workplaces the systemic inequities in our societies? How can we best imagine more collaborative workplaces?

We invite you to join this year’s Comm Lead Connects learning and networking event, where we will collectively and critically imagine what these tensions and opportunities mean for our region.


What you'll learn:

After attending Comm Lead Connects: Future of Work, you’ll return to your present-day job with a clear understanding of the emerging technologies and culture dynamics that will shape the workplace of the future — as well as a strong sense of the challenges and opportunities for your specific industry and company. Our goal at the event is to create a rich learning environment.

These learnings will be applicable for those in any professional communicaiton field, including storytelling, branding, marketing, public relations, content strategy, user experience design, employee engagement, leadership, people management, and more.

You’ll be energized with new knowledge, deeper insights, and wider networks, including connections to thought leaders and experts. The event will feature a unique set of speakers, including (1) professionals who design and build emerging technologies, (2) analysts of the evolving workplace experience, and (3) advocates and researchers who are exploring tech and work-related topics.
