NCE Workshop Series: The Future of Work is Now

April 12, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Spotify’s 2000 employees work in self-organized squads. Patagonia, Zappos, and Morningstar and a growing number of enterprises innovate how they organize work – focused on diverse talent and emerging technology, not job descriptions or org charts. Start-ups and legacy companies alike are reinventing how work happens, organized to maximize purpose, autonomy, creativity and agility. In the age of AI, globalism and complexity, every enterprise from prototype to scale must reimagine how to leverage people and technology in whole new ways.

Join us and Brown alumna, MJ Kaplan ’82, for a conversation on the future of work and startups. MJ started her career as a community organizer. Today, she continues to empower people and enterprises to seize ownership for their future and core values. She pursued her passion for personal, organizational and community change in many settings before launching Kaplan Consulting in 2000. She recently spent 2013 in New Zealand as the Ian Axford Fellow in Public Policy, Fulbright New Zealand and researched social venture start-ups.

Soon she joined Loomio, a digital platform for collaborative decision making where she spent 4 years co-creating new possibilities for better-faster decision making with an awesome group of humans. MJ loves teaching and mentoring young people (she has mentored countless Brown students and alumni) and spent several years teaching students at Brown University in social enterprise and strategy. This year – 2018 – she is now consulting as a partner with The Ready.
