THE EVENT

This Women Deliver 2019 partner side event will include a fireside chat and interactive discussion on the topic “Future of Work: Women in the 21st Century Workplace”.

Key leaders in the business community and public sector will be invited to discuss the changing world of work and its implications for women’s employment and decent work. Jobs of the future is a key emerging area that is galvanizing both excitement and concern: if we are not making drastic and transformative changes on the economic and labour market policies and strategies, women and girls risk losing out on what the 21st Century labour market, workplace and marketplace have to offer.
