It’s about rethinking future skills by looking at competencies instead of credentials

I recently had the opportunity to experiencethe world’s largest conference on gender equality and the health, rights, and well-being of girls and women — Women Deliver 2019. 

While presenting on the topic of gender inclusivity at conferences at home and abroad has almost become old hat for me, I must admit this event and its high calibre of expertise, research and dialogue was truly memorable.

The WE EMPOWER programme of UN Women, the European Union and the International Labour Organization teamed up with G(irls) 20 to host “The Future of Work: Women in the 21st Century Workplace” and I was honoured to be a panel member with colleagues from UN Women, McKinsey and UNSCR 1325.
