TGI Event – The Future of AI: Keynote Debate

Join us for a virtual Keynote Debate as leading industry experts discuss the potential impact of AI on leadership and work.

The Future of AI: Will artificial intelligence reshape leadership and the workplace?

With AI (artificial intelligence) automating all kinds of work, to what extent will it reshape the workplace and create a more comfortable future for humanity by creating many new jobs? Or will it instead displace current forms of employment? How will the future of AI impact the way that leaders and managers run organizations, and will it require a reassessment of leadership to meet the new challenges of automation?

Tune in on September 14 as our panel of experts debates this fascinating and topical issue, seeking to answer the question: Will artificial intelligence fundamentally reshape leadership and the workplace? This Keynote Debate is part of ongoing celebrations for the 30th anniversary of Tufts Gordon Institute, as we celebrate our mission to create the next generation of transformational leaders with purpose, equipped with the mindset and skillset to greet the dynamic changes facing our society.
