Is it 2021 or 2022? If you find yourself doing a double-take on the date just to be sure which year it is, you aren’t alone.
From remote work to hybrid work to online meetings, the world, especially modern-day offices, has seen radical changes. It has been a lot to keep up with.
Who would have thought that once a side-hustle, the gig economy, would boost the economy? Or that new-age human-machine collaborations riding on the power of intelligent and intuitive technologies, would be already reimagining the future?
Another big change brought about by the COVID-19-induced remote work is the rise of women in tech.
To weigh in on these changes, we’re excited to announce the fifth edition of Future of Work 2022 — a two-day virtual conference by YourStory — kickstarting on March 28, 2022.
We ask the best minds in technology, product, and design, about their agendas and vision with the aim to drive decisive, actionable insights and equip organisations and leaders to better predict and prepare for the future.
The opening session would be presided over by Jack Condon, Evangelist, Epic Games. Catch Jack demystifying the ‘Unreal’ world of real-time animation in this session titled ‘Creating real-time ICVFX /animation in the hybrid world.’
Speakers such as Vidhya Seetharaman, Chief of Staff to CTO (Chief Technology Officer), Swiggy; Megha Yethadka, Senior Director, Program Management, Tech & Head, Global Scaled Solutions, Uber; Dr Geetha Manjunath, Founder and CEO, NIRAMAI, will share their vision on empowering women leaders in tech.
