About the Event
Today’s kids are growing up and transitioning into adulthood amidst rapid change and volatility. They only know life with a smartphone and artificial intelligence. COVID, climate change, and deep racial and economic divides are just part of the complex challenges they face. In this conversation, I go back to grad school to talk about the new research and insights on the future of work and learning, and talk with us about the currencies kids need to have a long and livable life in the future. Mark Rank, Herbert S. Hadley Professor of Social Welfare, will introduce this event.
