About the Future of Work Series

The Future of Work Series at UC Davis brings together experts from academia, government, and industry to discuss new and emerging fields of research and employment. The goal of this campus-wide series is to get students thinking more effectively about their future careers, and to help them identify emerging science and technology induced problem spaces that will demand extra attention in the coming years. Please note that this series is meant for students from all academic disciplines – although talks will often explore developments in science and technology, each talk will include a social sciences and/or humanities perspective as well.

For each event, one UC Davis faculty member is paired with one outside professional from industry, government, and/or the nonprofit sector for a fireside chat on the future of work in their respective fields. The fireside chat is followed by a student-led Q&A where each speaker answers the same questions from different frameworks.
