The Future of Work in Detroit

An OLLI Day Trip on June 5

Out of Town Out of Town
Imagine the nature of work in future generations. There will be careers not even contemplated today with the many advances in technology and artificial intelligence. In our Future of Work trip we will explore the re-purposing of space to design new work areas in downtown Detroit.

We will start with a 2 1/2 hour walking tour of the Quicken Loans complex covering multiple buildings. This showcases the renovation of some historic buildings in addition to creatively designed work spaces.

In the afternoon we will move on to Tech Town, Detroit’s entrepreneurial hub affiliated with Wayne State University. We’ll have a catered lunch (sandwiches and salads), view the creative work areas, and learn about their expansion efforts followed by a panel presentation. The panelists will share their experiences and thoughts about the future of work, artificial intelligence, and local initiatives moving Detroit forward.

The price of the trip includes bus transportation, lunch, snacks, and gratuities.

This trip for those 50 and over will take place on Wednesday, June 5, from 7:45 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., however you must register for the trip early and there are no refunds without replacements inside 30 days of trip departure.
