We must Future-Proof the Future Workforce
According to the World Economic Forum (WEF), five years from now, over one-third of skills (35%) that are considered important in today’s workforce will have changed.
By 2020, the Fourth Industrial Revolution will have brought us advanced robotics and autonomous transport, artificial intelligence and machine learning, advanced materials, biotechnology and genomics.
New Innovations will require New Leaders
Robotics and autonomous transport, Artificial Intelligence (“A.I.”) and machine learning, advanced materials, biotechnology and genomics will transform the way we live, and the way we work.
Some jobs will disappear, others will grow and jobs that don’t even exist today will become commonplace. What is certain is that the future workforce will need to align its skillset to keep pace.
Creativity is King in the Industrial Revolution 4.0
The World Economic Forum (“WEF”) published a Talent Model of the 10 most “Critical Skills for the Workforce of 2020”. Creativity will become one of the top three skills workers will need.
Workers are going to have to become more creative in order to benefit from these changes. Change won’t wait for us: business leaders, educators and governments all need to be proactive.
We must combat Bias and end "Chicken & Egg" Hiring

Bias has an out-sized impact on the under-served and under-resourced, and must be combated.
