The Future is Freelance: How to Embrace the Freelance Economy
Freelancing has been a trending career path for years, but 2020 proved that the freelance lifestyle and all that comes with it — flexibility, working with people anywhere in the world, and doing meaningful work — is here to stay. Freelancing goes beyond the gig economy — freelancing offers many the opportunity to design their careers and lives in a sustainable way.
This panel will feature diverse perspectives from freelancers and those who hire freelancers and will discuss the questions: How can we, as freelancers, build and maintain a sustainable career? What steps need to be taken to ensure the freelance economy is inclusive? And how can those who want to hire freelancers take the right steps to do so?
This workshop is open to anyone, including freelancers, self-employed, those who are considering freelancing, and those who want to hire freelancers.
