The Future of Work: Is Inclusive Growth Possible?

November 16, 2017

The work that humans do, both paid and unpaid, is being reshaped by digital technology. But technology is not the only reason work is changing, profoundly and structurally. Come join in the discussion about this evolution in how we make our livings, and what we can do to shape it.

Armine Yalnizyan is a leading progressive voice in Canada's economic scene. She helped define the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives' Inequality Project from 2006 to 2017. Armine is well-known for her weekly business commentary on CBC Radio's Metro Morning, the most listened-to radio show in the Greater Toronto Area; and nationally on The Big Picture panel, a popular feature of CBC TV's premier business show, On The Money. Armine is economic adviser to the federal government's foresight department, Policy Horizons, on the future of work and the economy.
