Hyman, director of ILR’s Institute for Workplace Studies and founder of its “Future of Work” series, will present with two other panelists, Jason Furman, former chair of the Council of Economic Advisers, and Kristin Sharp, executive director of Shift: The Commission on Work, Workers, and Technology.
