How it works

  • Weekly prep

    You’ll start your week with a series of short, easy-to-understand videos. Dive deeper by choosing from your preferred curated resources like podcasts, videos, and articles.

  • Live discussion sessions

    Twice a week, you’ll join discussion sessions with your squad. You’ll explore the topics from different viewpoints and build on each other’s ideas.

  • Socials and events

    Get to know people in other squads and make new friends at virtual socials like game nights, bake-offs, and more.

The program: Technology & the Future of Work

Based on an NYU seminar created and taught by edgi co-founder Josh Shapiro, this program will help you explore the social and ethical issues raised by rapid change and technological progress.
