The Future of Work, Catalina Rojas of PCDN

By: David J. Smith, September 28, 2017

The Global Youth Economics Opportunities Summit is taking place September 27-29 in Washington, DC.   Dr. Catalina Rojas from the Peace and Collaborative Development Network (PCDN) is attending (I am member of PCDN’s Career Advisory Board).  She wrote this thoughtful piece about the Future of Work after listening to a talk by Dr. Arun Sundararajan from New York University.    It looks at the emerging gig economy, raises ethical issues, and considers ways in which younger works need to prepare themselves for the future.  It’s worth a read.
