How, how much, and why we work is shifting faster than ever. As the nature of work evolves, so too will the workforce. From the tech industry to manufacturing jobs to service work, products are now capable of reaching billions of people from all different kinds of backgrounds. But for new technology and products to reach innovative potential, teams must be formed with a diverse set of perspectives. For this to happen, change needs to come from the top, with CEOs driving for diversity not only as a focus but as a priority.
Journalist and Bloomberg TV host Emily Chang reports on global technology, media companies, and startups. She regularly speaks to top tech executives, investors, and entrepreneurs, and offers a wide range of observations about how work is changing and how businesses can keep up with the pace.
In every sector, leaders and CEOs are looking for a competitive edge, but only some have realized that there is an abundance of talent and valuable ideas in populations that have been largely untapped. Chang will show that the future of work isn’t just about the influence of tech and artificial intelligence, but innovation and an inclusive workforce. Striving for diversity in the workplace is not just the right thing to do but the smart thing to do in a competitive and rapidly changing global economy.
