The Actors of the Future – Parminder Jassal
Join us for a conversation with Parminder Jassal, who is the CEO of Unmudl Public Benefit Corp. and the Founder/CEO of SocialTech.ai. She is also the Founder of the “Work + Learn Futures Lab” at the Institute for the Future in Palo Alto, California.
Dr. Jassal investigates the future through three intersecting lenses: 1) the innovations of open economies; 2) changing role of people in their environments; and 3) the relationship between learning and work. Through new research and research-inspired prototyping, she applies insights from the fringes to promote positive culture shifts and solutions by getting ahead of inequities.
Her drive is led by incredible experiences at Fortune 50 companies such as at Ford Motor Company, Atlantic Richfield Oil Company, and Lucent Technologies. And her entrepreneurial spirit began with co-founding start-ups like Technology Solutions and Consulting, Bombay House Restaurant, and East Indian Trading Cafe.
Unmudl is a Skills-to-Jobs Marketplace founded by U.S. Community Colleges to connect community college students to employers. Unmudl offers community college courses, credentials, and services to facilitate skills development redeemable at multiple community colleges and employers.
