Our chief impact officer, Sharmi Surianarian joined 2019 Laureate in economic sciences, Abhijit Banerjee and former JSE CEO, Nicky Newton-King to discuss the social and environmental impact of work at Africa’s first ever Nobel Prize Dialogue. These events – previously hosted in many countries across the world – bring science and society closer to stimulate creative thinking by gathering a unique constellation of Nobel Laureates, key opinion leaders, policy makers, students, researchers, and the general public.
With a focus on The Future of Work, panellist answered questions like: what is the ‘new normal’ for working life? What benefits does diversity bring to the workplace? How does an ageing global population change the labour market? And how is the COVID-19 pandemic changing the nature of work?
