The inaugural Oklahoma State University Future of Work Summit will be held Thursday, Aug. 31, and Friday, Sept. 1, at the Oklahoma City Convention Center.

This multi-day summit will look at the rapidly changing facets of work and showcase ways organizations can stay ahead of the curve. Interactive sessions will include topics related to evolving workplace cultures, technology integration, workforce agility and much more.

Keynote speakers Stephen Dubner and Scott Klososky will invite attendees to think outside of the box when considering how to pivot and adapt. Dubner, bestselling author and co-author of “Freakonomics,” will challenge everything you thought you knew about business while Klososky, a leading expert in technology innovation, will discuss leading through disruption and humalogy in the workplace.

Abbey Davis, director of the Center of the Future of Work and assistant professor of professional practice at the OSU Spears School of Business, highlights why the Future of Work Summit is a must-attend for businesses and individuals.

“Participants will be able to walk away with practical strategies they can implement around emerging technologies, sustainability, social impact and culture,” Davis said. “We’ll unpack and demystify terms like automation and AI and together reimagine how we do work in the future.”

Marc Tower, assistant dean of outreach and economic development for Spears Business, discusses the innovation that is already happening in Oklahoma.

“We’ve seen groundbreaking developments and future of work headlines from all over the globe, but what excites us the most is the transformative work that is being done in our region, and in our state,” Tower said. “We’re excited to showcase some of these thought leaders at the summit.”

The center addresses this need by providing professional and leadership development programs, services such as customized training, executive coaching, and consulting, and conducting research to better understand and prepare for the workplace of tomorrow.
