The Future of Work (Canvas net)

Created by: Delivered by:

Our goal is not to uncover the Next Big Thing in the future of work. Our goal is to provide you with the skills and insights to examine and understand new futures as they reveal themselves and prepare you to continuously learn, grow, and succeed no matter what the future throws at you. The purpose of this course is to see the future of work through a new lens, which will help you chart your own path through that future with greater confidence and greater ability to succeed.
