"Future of Work - How the topic of (generative) AI will challenge us now and in the future and how we can learn to deal with it in order to make use of it"

Everyone is talking about AI, generative AI (GenAI). The education system does not yet know how to regulate it, companies want to use it in a targeted manner and some of us are asking ourselves "what do I need to know, what else should I learn". As an active member of our society, as future employees and teachers, we can prepare ourselves for these complex questions and the unknown.

What should we already know and what can we still learn?

Which gadgets can be used where and how, and are they being used by companies?

What unknowns are we likely to have to deal with?

And what contribution can each of us make to society?

29.04.2024 - 16:00 - 20:00 Uhr - Hansa Haus München (Läugerzimmer) - max. 20 participants - Language: English - Trainer: Julia Reichert

What do you want to be when you grow up?

This question comes up again and again in the course of our lives. After school and then much more urgently during our studies, we ask ourselves what we could do to earn a living later on. But what happens after studying? Will I become a professor, manager or lawyer because that's what I really want, or because that's what others expect of me?

In this workshop, we will address the following questions:
What do I actually want? What is important to me? What are my talents? What do I enjoy doing so much that I would do it for free? What makes me happy?


  • Talents: Where are my strengths, how can I use them particularly effectively?
  • Motivation: How can I do exactly what I want to do? How do I motivate myself and others?
  • Objectives: Imagination of potential work environment, working hours, earnings, self-employment (5-year vision). What are potential hurdles? What are the fears that hold me back?
