“The picture of the Future of Work gets clearer every day. It involves the use of Big Data and AI, robots and people. It is local and global. It requires college degrees and micro credentials. The Future of Work changes every day as our picture of the future gets clearer. UNLEASH America brings the most current – and most aspirational – thinkers, makers, leaders, and innovators together to make the picture clearer based on what we know today,” says China Gorman, Managing Director, UNLEASH America.
