The Future of Work, 18 May 2021, 10:00-14:00 SAST, Online event

University of Pretoria to host first Nobel Prize Dialogue to take place in Africa

The Nobel Prize Dialogue, with ‘The Future of Work’ as its theme, aims to bring science and society closer and stimulate creative thinking by gathering a unique constellation of Nobel Laureates, key opinion leaders, policy makers, students, researchers, and the general public. Many questions will be raised during the dialogue, such as: “What is the ‘new normal’ for working life?” “What benefits does diversity bring to the workplace?” “How does an ageing global population change the labour market?” “And how is the COVID-19 pandemic changing the nature of work?”
