Building the Digitally Fit and Inclusive Workforce of the Future - Today

Overview

Mar 14, 2019

New York City, USA
Building the Digitally Fit and Inclusive Workforce of the Future - Today is hosted by PwC.

ICEDR partner companies and academic partners may send colleagues.

Leaders are racing to unlock the value of data, tech-enabled business processes, and create better, more digitally-enhanced experiences for customers and employees. They are working to disrupt their own businesses before somebody else does. CEOs also recognize the imperative for a diverse workforce and inclusive culture. None of this can be achieved without substantial investment in talent, development and enabling processes and technology. Executives know they can’t hire their way out of the need for upskilled employees. Employees are focused on organizations that will invest in their development and help secure their future in the face of increasing automation and AI.

This program will provide participants with insights on workforce and diversity strategies for a digital, data driven economy. Leaders from PwC will share insights from their own firm experience, along with executives from other leading organizations.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will obtain insights on topics including:
  • Learning and Development strategies for building digital acumen with specific examples of apps, learning assets and development programs
  • Driving digital upskilling and innovation at scale, using crowdsourcing, innovative platforms, new roles, and change and communications strategies
  • Applications of people analytics to drive strategy and optimize the employee experience
  • Building a culture that fosters a growth mindset and lifelong learning
  • Insights on building inclusive leadership, unconscious bias education and dialogue to create belonging and insights from the CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion initiative
  • Gender and power in the innovation economy: strategies, learning and progress
