How We Will Work in the Future

by Ann Nakaska – introduction published on Facebook 2021-07-25
A year and a half ago I shared my NCDA conference article Imagination, Innovation and Career Opportunities of the Future on LinkedIn and the rest as they say is history. A wonderful man by the name of Steven Beasley contacted me and asked if I would like to co-edit a journal on How We Will Work in the Future.

Joy and Sorrow. I am over the moon excited to say that the journal is complete and has been launched out into the world. I am so honoured beyond words to have been given this amazing apportunity.

Sadly Steven passed away on July 3, 2021. What a legacy this man left behind and this journal is just one small part of it. Steven had an impressive career and was the managing editor for the Career Planning and Adult Development Journal for 20 years. This issue of the journal is dedicated to Steven. While he did not get to see the final version of the journal, he did get to see the a very rough draft. I know he would be proud.
I promised Steven I would complete the journal and make sure the journal was published. Many thanks to Richard Knowdell and Rich Feller Ph.D. who without their help, this journal would never have become a reality.

Many thanks to all the authors who contibuted a wealth of forward thinking information to help career practitioners guide their clients into the future workplace including
