As new remote work options decouple employees from their employers’ physical locations, what becomes of city centers across the country? Does the divide between urban and rural communities narrow or widen? What will happen to onsite essential workers and small businesses?
President Daly will explore these questions and more with Keisha Lance Bottoms, Mayor of Atlanta, Georgia; Earvin "Magic" Johnson of Magic Johnson Enterprises; Lauren McLean, Mayor of Boise, Idaho; and Enrico Moretti of UC Berkeley's Department of Economics. The panel will discuss how changes brought on by COVID-19 are affecting the future of our cities and what that means for the people who live and work there.
