Event Information

Marla Beck is joined by Anna Auerbach, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Werk as they discuss the current and future trends that guide The Future of Work.

A former McKinsey consultant and social impact COO, Anna Auerbach is a Brandeis University and Harvard Business School grad who learned her first lesson in entrepreneurship when she moved to the U.S. as a refugee at age 6, knowing just one word of English. Anna's startup Werk enables the mass customization of the work day through their proprietary flex taxonomy, The Flexiverse. The Flexiverse standardizes flexibility for the first time and powers our suite of flexibility solutions: our enterprise flexibility assessment tool, our enterprise e-learning certification program, and our job board with pre-negotiated flexibility. Flexibility is a top need for everyone - but can disproportionately help women stay in the workforce and reach the C suite. Werk has raised $4M to date, and has been featured across a variety of media including CNBC, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Fast Company, Glamour and more.
