"Where We Were and Where We're Going" - Women in the Workforce, featuring Futurist Bob Chernow
Women have moved up the management ladder these past two decades. Our speaker believes that the primary reason is the change in the economy from mass production to mass customization and thus a world where co-operation and collaboration is replacing top down management style.

In a 2000 interview in The Grand Rapids Press, Chernow said that this "move will not be driven by the so-called women's movement, but by the rapid emergence of new technologies."

"What I'm talking about," he said, "is a method of management where people go from control to freedom, a system where you will basically tell people: here's the project; here's the budget. Do it!"

How will you, as women, succeed in this new world? Chernow will talk about what skills you might want to develop as well as other trends that will mold our economy and society in the next decade.
