Dr. Ekkehard Ernst and Dr. Avik Sarkar
The world in which we live and work is undergoing dramatic changes. Technological advancements from the “app economy” to the “Internet of Things” are altering the demand for labor. Rapid urbanization across the Global South – at a scale never witnessed before – is shifting billions of people from agrarian to urban occupations. In the face of conflict and climate change, millions are on the move from their countries of origin to other nations in search of better lives and livelihoods. And global trade is grappling with protectionism threatening to disrupt intricate value chains.
Against the backdrop of these large-scale, rapid transformations, the JustJobs Network and the Emerging Market Sustainability Dialogues launch, a webinar series about the Changing World of Work: Lessons from the Past, in the Present and for the Future. This webinar series will feature presentations by experts renowned in their field on cutting edge topics relevant to labor markets worldwide and people’s working lives.
The first in the session will be on Artificial Intelligence and Employment featuring Ekkehard Ernst, Chief, Job-friendly Macro-Economic Policies Unit, International Labour Organization and Avik Sarkar, Head, Data Analytics Cell, National Institution for Transforming India.
The webinar will be administered via Skype for Business. To join the meeting, kindly RSVP to Ira Sengupta by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at +91 11 4100 8832.
