Evidence to Action 2018: The Reality & Future of Work

Work & Education Conference   |   past event  |  Nov 01 2018

The contours of work are radically changing. Innovations in policy and technology promise to generate new pathways out of poverty through improved access to information, infrastructure, capital, and markets. At the same time, rapid innovation has led to growing inequality and uncertainty for some workers, especially in cases where risk is not properly managed or understood. Around the world, but especially in poor countries, there remains remarkably little evidence to guide labor market investments.

On Thursday, November 1st, CEGA will host Evidence to Action 2018: The Reality & Future of Work. We’ll explore the work lives of people in poverty, and the ways in which technology and policy can be harnessed to make future growth more inclusive. Pioneering researchers, including Paul Romer, NYU professor and 2018 Nobel laureate in Economics, will share insights from field experiments in the US, India, Kenya, Bangladesh and beyond.

The event is part of CEGA’s annual Evidence to Action (E2A) series and marks our tenth year as a global leader in economic development research. Founded in 2008, CEGA has become a West Coast hub for research that influences policy dialogues and shapes government decision-making
