Bloomberg, Cornell Tech, & Tech:NYC invite you to join us for the latest installment of the CornellTech@Bloomberg series featuring a panel of three entrepreneurs who are pioneering the transformation of education & work: Jake Schwartz, co-founder & CEO of General Assembly, Leah Belsky, vice president of global enterprise development at Coursera, & Jeremy Snepar, founder & CEO of New York Code + Design Academy.
Rapid technological development & innovation, as well as the increasing amount of automation across all industries, have enormous implications for the future of work in America. For business leaders, the question is no longer whether technology will replace jobs, but rather how education & business should adapt to the paradigm shifts created by technology in society as a whole.
While technology fundamentally transformations the way we work, employees are becoming increasingly concerned that their jobs may be at risk. At the same time, executives must find ways to continuously evolve their organizations & talent in a time of rapid innovation. Obstacles such as increasing tuition costs have led to the development of new, on-demand platforms for education.
Our panel will be joined on stage with Bloomberg's own Scarlet Fu to discuss the opportunities & challenges companies & workers face in the age of automation, as well as the importance of business dynamism in the face of such challenges. This will be the first event in our series to take place at Cornell Tech's recently opened campus on Roosevelt Island.
