20 May WATCH: Clive Discusses the Post-COVID Workplace on NewCities’ ‘The Big Rethink’
In the context of COVID-19, the term ‘essential’ has gone beyond defining indispensable activities and labor during a time of crisis and entered the realm of Orwellian doublespeak. The pandemic has only accelerated a much larger conversation being led by market forces, the development and accessibility of technology, and other mega-trends about what is essential–and by definition, non-essential–about work in cities.
Watch Clive–along with fellow panelists Jamira Burley, Head of Youth Engagement & Skills, Global Business Coalition for Education; Munish Khetrapal, Chief Growth Officer for Global Public Sector, Cisco; and Jan Simpson, President, Canadian Union of Postal Workers–take a deep dive into the how, what and where of the future of the urban workforce post-COVID 19 with host and NewCities Senior Fellow, Greg Lindsay.
NewCities is a Canadian-based global nonprofit committed to shaping a better urban future. Thank you NewCities for hosting and Cisco Canada for sponsoring the discussion.
