August 25, 2021 Open Assembly and the Center for the Transformation of Work
When John Winsor appeared on the Uprisor podcast to talk about open talent adoption, we called him The Godfather of Crowd. He is a pioneer and global authority on open innovation, and the founder & CEO of Open Assembly, a leading organization in the Open Talent Economy.
Open Assembly helps organizations drive crowdsourcing adoption through content, community, and consulting. They are future of work thought leaders, hosting conversations and connecting organizations and people who want to thrive as digital tools like crowdsourcing, blockchain and artificial intelligence change how we work.
The Center for the Transformation of Work
Born out of the Open Assembly community, The Center for the Transformation of Work (CTW) is a community dedicated to transforming work into something more open, inclusive, dynamic, and agile. Digital technologies have radically changed – and continue to change at ever increasing rates – the world we live in. But the way we work remains, stubbornly, an artifact of the past.
CTW aligns workers, business leaders, talent platforms, and academics to create a shared narrative and standardization around a new way of working. The goal of the CTW is to create common industry terminology, tools, educational resources, and playbooks in order to help organizations and individuals more easily adopt and benefit from using open talent tools.
Join the Community
The CTW community is open to anyone who is interested in sharing and learning more about the open talent economy. They host calls two times a month to chat about hot topics and trends in the industry, and have enjoyed bringing on special guests including educators and academic researchers, investors, global practitioners, platforms, legal and procurement specialists, DEI leaders, and everything in between. They also host a Clubhouse gathering once a month.
CTW Community Highlights
- More than 500 members
- 75-100 avg. attendees on calls
