Description

We are seeking a part-time volunteer/program associate for a crucial project about the future of AI and employment and income, at a time when this issue is one of the most pressing of our time.


This non-profit, non-partisan initiative, convened by a group of leading policy organizers with deep connections to Washington, DC policymakers, and organized by Jim Clark (see bio below), a seasoned expert in technology, convening, technological unemployment, and AI governance, is focused on how to harness AI’s potential for societal benefit while mitigating its disruptive impacts particularly as regards its imminent and almost certainly profound impact on employment and income. 

The project will have three main phases: Groundwork and Coalition-Building (now until end July), Coalition-Strengthening & Fundraising (August/September), and Policy Lab (October/November). The volunteer is not required to be involved in all three phases, but definitely would be involved in the first phase through the end of July.

Assisting Jim Clark, the project lead, the person in this role will focus (in phase one) on:

• Research/Outreach. Assisting on identifying the world's leading relevant experts and finding their contact details. Inviting them to complete a survey to help gain further understanding of the state of current thinking as part of an invitation to a Zoom meeting to be held in mid-July.

• Survey Tracking/Meeting Management. Tracking survey responses and helping prepare for the large-scale Zoom meting.

• Report Distribution. Helping prepare a report of survey and meeting results and making sure that it reaches target audiences.


Experience/Interests Required or Desired:

• Excellent online research skills (Google Search, chatGPT, etc.)

• Excellent data management skills (Excel/Google Sheets, Constant Contact/MailChimp, etc)

• Truly strong sense of self-initiative and task management when working remotely.


About Jim Clark

Jim Clark is an organizer of catalytic coalitions and a recognized authority on the future societal implications of science and technology innovation, including technological unemployment and AI governance. In addition to a wide variety of high-level projects in the nonprofit sector, business, politics, policy, and other areas of social impact, he has convened numerous high-profile gatherings of some of the most influential people in the world, including as founder and executive chairman for over two decades (1997-2021) of the World Technology Network. Such gatherings included not only the annual World Technology Summit & World Technology Awards held in association with TIME, Fortune, CNN, and many other leading partners, but also more focused meetings such as the World Summit on Technological Unemployment (2015) and the International Congress for the Governance of AI (co-convenor, 2018-2021).
