The Future of Work and the Workforce

December 2-3, 2014
Baltimore, MD

This funders briefing explored what work and working will look like in the future, the potential impact of key trends on low-income workers, families and communities, and the role of philanthropy in shaping better outcomes for the workplace and workers. The meeting included interactive discussions on:

  • The impact of technology on jobs, the nature of work and workers;
  • The increasing precariousness of work and evolving employer/employee relationship; and
  • The growing mismatch between workplace policies and the realities of today's families and their caregiving needs given demographic and labor force shifts.
