Long hailed as the strongest economy in the world, COVID-19 forced what for many was a shocking revelation that the era of our robust U.S. stock market and period of unprecedented business profits did not increase income and access to decent work opportunities for the over 30 million Americans who recently lost their jobs. While we can hope that many will find employment once the crisis passes or stabilizes, a second challenge to accessing decent work is the rise of a 4th Industrial Revolution (4th IR) and its advanced use of technology to how we work (e.g., artificial intelligence and machine learning; Schwab, 2012). This workshop is for those who are ready to more effectively manage and expand their occupational and career opportunities. The workshop will describe the technical and deeper human skills that are high demand in this 4th IR and describe free-access and low-cost opportunities for developing those skills (Cappelli & Tavis, 2018; Lim-Lange & Lim-Lange, 2019; Schwab, 2012 PRESENTER Dr. V.
