On Wednesday 15 August 2018, JIAS held the first of four panel discussions on Work and the Future’. This opening panel discussed the broad changes involved in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, their implications for the future of work, and whether South Africa is capable of addressing them. Panelists included Prof Tshilidzi Marwala, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of UJ, and Enoch Godongwana, chairperson of the ANC NEC Economic Transformation Sub-committee. About forty people attended. The introductory remarks were followed by a lively discussion. For details about the next three panel discussions, click here.
