FUTURE OF WORK
The rise of the platform economy has introduced a convenient way to match those in need of services to those who can offer them, and all with a click of a button. The number of so-called 'gig workers' or 'platform workers' is rising. What will the future of work look like?
Reshaping Work is an international and multidisciplinary conference that offers a vibrant space to collectively rethink work in the platform economy.
On the 24 & 25 October 2019, academics, policymakers, business leaders and platform workers will come together to experience the future of work and find ways to shape it. We will convene this group of people during a two-day conference held in Amsterdam. Participants will get the latest insights, not only from policymakers, academics, and business leaders but also from platform workers themselves.
WHY COME TO RESHAPING WORK?
When came across the event I could connect to it immediately. I knew, as a gig worker and an artist, that I wanted to be a part of the discussion, but nothing could have prepared me for how damn good the experience was.
—Alina Lupu, Conceptual artisit & Platform worker
Reshaping Work brings together policymakers, academics, firms, unions, and – most importantly – the practitioners in the gig-economy to discuss the future of work in a stimulating setting. It is the most comprehensive and insightful conference on these topics I have participated in to-date.
— Fredrik Söderqvist, Economist at Unionen,
We cannot understand the gig economy until we grapple with its competing narratives: Reshaping Work provided a unique opportunity to hear from and discuss with representatives of gig economy workers, academics, and platform operators. A great event!
— Jeremias Prassl, Associate Professor Faculty of Law, University of Oxford
