You will collaborate virtually in a team of four students over two days to brainstorm and design innovative, reciprocal, equitable and accessible approaches to the future of work. On day three, teams will present their concepts to a panel of judges – where the top three teams and the peoples’ choice winner will share in the prize of $5000.
