Ready for the Global Workforce - GYEO Virtual Series Event

The Ready for the Global Workforce Summit track explores young peoples’ preparation for, access to, and participation in the formal and informal economy. The track is focused on 1) the impact of a changing workforce on young people (e.g., the skills gap, automation, digital disruption, decentralization of employment, new and emerging industries of opportunity); 2) rural economies and agriculture (e.g., changing agri-business, youth access to land, finance, training, the impact of climate change and youth responses); 3) employer engagement, including strategies for work readiness and demand-driven training, talent acquisition, retention, work-based learning and mentorship, and effective private-sector partnerships.

This year we consider these questions against the impacts of the COVID-19 crisis and its impact on the global economy now and in the future. Live breakout sessions include a cross-cutting focus on topics such as youth engagement, gender, disability inclusion, and private-sector partnerships.
