In honor of Pepperdine Graziadio Business School’s 50th anniversary, the school will host a full day of events to reflect upon its long legacy, as well as look ahead as to how we can prepare today’s students for the future of work and the “4th Industrial Revolution.”
Pepperdine Graziadio Dean Deryck van Rensburg, Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak, Singularity University Founding Executive Director Salim Ismail, and Institute for the Future’s Bob Johansen, along with several other influential thought leaders, will share their insights on how employers can prepare for the 4th Industrial Revolution and how employees can ensure they remain competitive as automation increases in nearly every industry sector.
The event will also include two panel discussions. The morning panel, on women in leadership in the Smart Machine Age, will be moderated by Jadi Communications CEO Denise Roberson, and will feature Johnson & Johnson Consumer’s Chief Marketing Officer Alison Lewis, Twitter’s Vice President People Rewards & Experience Dalana Brand, and Pixar’s Vice President of Inclusion Strategies Britta Wilson. The afternoon thought leadership panel will be moderated by McKinsey Quarterly Editor Allen Webb, and feature Darden School of Business Professor Ed Hess, Aspiration CEO Andrei Cherny, Genoa Healthcare’s Former CEO John Figueroa, and Twentieth Century Fox Television Chief Information Officer Alex Grimwade.
