The 2019 Future of Work Conference

The Future of Work and Workers
in Collaboration with Citi Foundation and the City of South Bend


The Citi Foundation, the University of Notre Dame, the City of South Bend, and the Zielsdorf Family Partnership for Corporate Engagement will convene key thought leaders from think tanks and academia; the private sector; NGOs; foundations; and local, state and federal governments for a series of focused presentations and  discussions on “the future of work and workers”. The conference will be held on the campus of the University of Notre Dame Tuesday evening, June 4th
through Thursday afternoon, June 6th, 2019.

The conference will seek to focus on social and technological policies and innovations that will enable leaders and institutions to manage disruption while optimizing the benefits of technology for their citizens. What does the future of work look like when framed in the human context? We wish to move beyond the problem definition that has dominated other such events towards tools and solutions that can only be derived from rich multi-stakeholder engagement, bringing together ethicists, technologists, policy  researchers, politicians and business leaders. The conference is intended to be both domestic and global in perspective with some elements devoted to the particular challenges of automation facing states like Indiana in the industrial Midwest.

A full schedule and registration information may be found at the Future of Work at Notre Dame site.
