 Talent Forward: Improving Talent Through Technology with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation

Join a virtual conversation about how technology is both welcomed and feared in the workforce of the future. Co-hosted by PBS & The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation.

The global economy is rapidly changing—labor markets are increasingly dynamic, and skills obsolescence is affecting all industries. Technology’s role in these changes has been both welcomed with open arms and feared. The next event in the Talent Forward virtual series, co-hosted with the new PBS Future of Work Initiative, will explore how technology advances such as automation can open countless doors for better education and employment opportunities.

This event will feature clips from the documentary’s accompanying digital series, which examines how the current economic and health crises are impacting long-term employment trends for entry-level and early career workers.

Watch Future of Work, a three part series, airing on WXXI & PBS September 1 at 10pm, September 8 at 10pm , and September 15 at 10pm
