KST Presents

Wednesday, September 19, 2018
6pm / Kelly Strayhorn Theater
5941 Penn Ave

“Thrival Innovation is about the future, and they want you to be a part of it.” —Visit PGH

Presented by Thrival as part of LIFE.CODE
With inspiring speakers and open-format discussion, “Future of Work” explores the transformation of our society through the lense of business and culture, and features an live excerpt of the 2015 Pulitzer Prize-nominated play Marjorie Prime.

Research indicates that more than 400 million jobs will be automated by the year 2030—these jobs happen to be what most people do for a living. The sixth annual Thrival Festival explores the evolving relationship between humans and technology with interdisciplinary thought leadership at the forefront of their fields in a “Three Act” symposium session charting the challenges and opportunities presented by technological change in the workplace.

Produced by Ascender and funded in part by presenting sponsors UPMC Enterprises and Peoples, with support from PNC.
