Missed Our Tyee Event on the ‘Future of Working’? Watch It Here

We brought together five smart people to hash out how our jobs, and safety nets, are evolving.

Submitted by Tyee Staff, 20 Jun 2017

 

Is there a way to prosper doing precarious work? How will co-working communities band together? How will unions evolve in the years to come? Is job stability even possible?

The Tyee recently hosted “(In)secure: The Future of Working” to explore the future of work with a diverse range of speakers: economist Henry Siu of UBC, co-working advocate Ashley Proctor, veteran labour journalist Rod Mickleburgh, Ambrosia Vertesi of Duo Security and formerly Hootsuite, and human rights advocate Byron Cruz.

Gordon Katic of Cited, a podcast and syndicated radio program about research and higher education, moderated the event. You can listen to Cited’s great podcast of the event here.

The event was proudly co-presented with SFU's Vancity Office of Community Engagement, with support from United Steelworkers, Vancity, Community Savings, SFU Public Square, Urban Worker Project, BC Federation of Labour, and Changemakers Vancouver.
