Economic Policy Institute: Making the Digital Economy Work for Everyone

February 25, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

From the Economic Policy Institute:

The digital transformation of the global economy is more than automation and AI—it is a fundamental structural transformation. As two of the leading global economies, the United States and Germany are at the forefront of debates about what the changes brought by technological progress mean for employees, gig workers, unions, and businesses.

What innovative ideas are out there to make the digital economy a working economy for all? Please join us for a discussion with policy makers and union leaders from both sides of the Atlantic as we address this challenging question.

This event is free and open to the public. Your RSVP will help us prepare.

Monday, February 25
5:00 p.m.–7:00 p.m. Eastern time

Moderated by Thea M. Lee, President, Economic Policy Institute
