Today: Join San Francisco Fed’s livestream, The New Future of Work: Future of Cities

SAN FRANCISCO ­­– Today, the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco will livestream the second in a series of virtual discussions about The New Future of Work. This event will explore the future of cities and what’s next for employers and employees once the COVID-19 pandemic is behind us.

As new, remote work options decouple employees from their employers’ physical locations, panelists will discuss the future of city centers across the country, the urban and rural divide, and how small businesses and essential, onsite workers could be affected. The conversation will be moderated by Mary C. Daly, president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco.

Featured panelists include:

  • Keisha Lance Bottoms, mayor of Atlanta, Georgia
  • Earvin “Magic” Johnson, chairman and CEO of Magic Johnson Enterprises (MJE)
  • Lauren McLean, mayor of Boise, Idaho
  • Enrico Moretti, professor of economics at the University of California, Berkeley

The online event is open to the public and will be livestreamed via Twitter and Facebook from 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. Pacific. Archived video from this event will be available on-demand at
