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.

I am conflict resolution educator, peacebuilding trainer and career coach. My professional experience has spanned the legal, think tank, international, quasi-government, and higher and secondary education sectors. I have taught at all higher education levels: community college, 4-year undergraduate (private, public, religious), graduate, and international. In 2003-2004 I was a U.S. Fulbright Scholar teaching at the University of Tartu in Estonia. From 2005 -2012 I was a senior program officer and senior manager at the U.S. Institute of Peace in Washington where I managed programs for colleges and universities and developed training for faculty and students. I work with all groups and educational institutions to support peacebuilding awareness.
