To commemorate its 85th Anniversary as a leader in providing professionally focused educational programs, the NYU School of Professional Studies hosted a forum on “The Future of Work” on February 12, 2020 at the NYU Kimmel Center for University Life.
NYU SPS Dean Susan Greenbaum welcomed the audience with remarks that highlighted the School’s unique position in preparing students for the workforce of the future. The event featured one-on-one conversations with Art Bilger, founder and CEO of WorkingNation, and Julia Lamm ’11, partner, Financial Services People & Organization Practice, PwC; a presentation by Anna Tavis, clinical associate professor and academic director of the Human Capital Management Program at the NYU SPS Division of Programs in Business; and a panel discussion with NYU SPS faculty members who are prominent industry experts.
The morning’s deep content explored the changes taking place in the world of work—from technological innovations and globalization, to shared work, the gig economy, and the urbanization of job creation—and how to address them. More than 100 individuals attended, including a cross section of government officials, hiring managers, and educational administrators in addition to NYU SPS faculty members, students, and administrators. On display was the Proclamation bestowed upon the School by the NYC Mayor’s Office to mark its 85th Anniversary. The framed document, which was positioned on the stage for all to see, proclaimed October 28, 2019, NYU School of Professional Studies Day.
