We are entering a brave new world of robots, driverless trucks and automated tasks, of redefined responsibilities, of blurring boundaries between paid work and voluntary work as people look for new purpose in their lives. Our 10th Anniversary Lecture will investigate the impact of this Fourth Industrial Revolution, in its various forms, on the charity sector. 

Our Chairman and former Cabinet Secretary Lord Gus O’Donnell will contribute introductory remarks, followed by a keynote address from Andy Haldane, Chief Economist at the Bank of England and co-founder of Pro Bono Economics.  

Our co-founder will then join the panel debate to question the various manifestations of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and how charities can best rise to the challenges it poses and make most of the opportunities it holds. Andy Haldane will be joined by Geoff Mulgan, CEO of NESTA, and Dame Vivian Hunt, Managing Partner at McKinsey UK. The debate will be chaired by Jenny Scott, former host of the BBC’s Daily Politics and a Trustee of Pro Bono Economics.

Please join us on May 22nd at The Royal Society to participate in this pioneering discussion. Book your space here.
