As so much of everyday life has rapidly shifted into the digital world, state and local government agencies have emerged as pillars of support providing resources, policy, and guidance to communities, schools, and organizations, both large and small. With local levels of government having such impact in facilitating the rapidly evolving nature of work, it is important to understand the perspectives coming from the public sector.

In a state whose diverse industries range from biotech to poultry farming or defense and aerospace to working watermen and seafood, Secretary Kelly M. Schulz from the Maryland Department of Commerce has a unique perspective and vantage point to watch the future of work unfold. Join us on Wednesday, February 17th at 8:00 pm ET for a conversation with Secretary Schulz, led by IKNS lecturer, Jordon Sims.

The conversation will center on the future of work and how government and industry have been responding, including:

  • shifts in the core areas of work, workplace, and workforce;
  • in-demand and emerging skills in the public sector workforce;
  • the evolution in the nature of careers with the government; and
