On Tuesday, April 23, 2013 we will gather at MIST with SiliconHarlem to discuss the future of work in New York City and specifically in Harlem. As the information economy continues to grow by leaps and bounds (and increasingly becomes the growing edge of the job market in the city), working arrangements and the concept of work life balance becomes more complicated than ever. We'll hear from local entrepreneurs, coworkers and more, weighing in on what's going in Harlem and in the city at large right now regarding how we all work.

April 23, 2013 from 6:00 - 9:00 pm at MIST, 40 W. 116th St. off Lenox Avenue
