Event description

Description

Americans are increasingly turning to freelancing, independent contracting, and gig work to support themselves, advance their careers, and create the lifestyle they desire. Given the growth of the gig economy, it is imperative that the workforce development community be well attuned to the various challenges and opportunities facing workers and ways to help them succeed.

Join the NYC Employment and Training Coalition, in partnership with Samaschool and Managed by Q, for a discussion among policymakers, workforce agencies, funders, thought leaders, and corporate partners on the changing nature of work in New York City and strategies for supporting jobseekers. The evening will include time for open discussion and networking, moderated by Alison Griswold, a reporter for Quartz covering the sharing economy.

Speakers will include:

  • Joey Ortiz, Executive Director of NYCETC
  • Dan Teran, Founder and CEO of Managed by Q
  • Jen Curry, Senior Director of Strategy and Policy for Samaschool
  • Josh Gold, Senior Manager of Public Affairs at Uber
  • Nancy Park, Program Officer (Income Security) at the Robin Hood Foundation
  • Palak Shah, Director of Social Innovations at the National Domestic Workers Alliance
  • Arun Sundararajan, Professor of Business at NYU Stern School of Business and author of “The Sharing Economy”
