Some of the key topics we covered at Perspectives 2021

FROM SKILLS GAP TO SKILLS REVOLUTION:

Transforming today's workforce for tomorrow's economy

The nature of work — and consequently, the nature of the workforce — has evolved at a rapid pace in recent years. The next normal will arrive fast on the heels of the new normal. Today’s skills gap will soon be a skills crisis. Intervention is not enough. What’s called for is a skills transformation.

WHO OWNS THE SKILLING AGENDA?

The skills gap is real and will only become wider in the future. How do we course correct? Where does responsibility lie? We’ll address how to rebuild and reskill the workforce so that it’s more resilient and better able to meet future challenges and opportunities.

IF THE FUTURE OF WORK IS NOW, WHAT NOW IS THE FUTURE?

With the return-to-work debate raging on, companies are re-evaluating the relationship between “work” and the “workplace.” Join us as organizations share their thinking on the future of work and what new working models they’re already deploying in the post-pandemic era.

INNOVATING TALENT DEVELOPMENT

It’s becoming more and more challenging to hire for the skills needed today — and virtually impossible to predict the skills needed tomorrow. Understand how organizations are innovating talent development to provide more career pathing as they work to attract, build, and retain a highly transient workforce.

A CULTURE OF LEARNING: HOW TO BUILD IT AND WHY IT’S SO IMPORTANT NOW

Technology is advancing at unprecedented speed, requiring new skills, reskilling, and specialization. In new remote and hybrid-model workplaces, each contributor must have the ability and willingness to manage his or her own time — and his or her own learning. Find out why learning will be pivotal to success, and how to leverage learning for your own organization.

LEARNING FOR THE WHOLE PERSON

The most fruitful learning encompasses the whole person not just the job description. To be fully present, mind, body, and spirit can be nurtured through learning. Discover how each of us must continually find motivation and inspiration to nurture both types of skills.

LEARNING FOR INCLUSION

In the continued journey toward true diversity, genuine equity, meaningful inclusion, and real belonging, learning is the most powerful tool organizations and leaders have. We’ll drill into action items for individuals, allies, and organizations.

SKILLING FOR THE FUTURE

According to the World Economic Forum, 65% of children entering primary school will end up in jobs that don’t even have a name yet. In rapid-fire sessions, designed for learners and leaders, attendees will have an opportunity to sample some of the most in-demand skills of tomorrow.
