During the session "Think Like Roundtables", attendees were asked to put on a different hat and think from a perspective of an entrepreneur, policy maker, labor organizer, platform worker, incumbent, and a staffing agency.
During our signature session "Meet the Platform Workers", Uber Eats and Deliveroo engaged in a constructive discussion with people who work through their platforms - this exciting panel made us laugh but also consider issues that are important to workers.
Thanks to the New York-based artist Brett Wallace, we offered you a window into experiences of platform workers. Participants were able to watch short documentaries, featuring interviews with food delivery riders, Amazon Mechanical Turkers, and Handy cleaners. What more, attendees were able to do an actual gig task!
