Education Can Change the Future of Work
Thu 23 March 2017, 18:30 – 21:00 GMT
Join fellow HR and L&D practitioners and team leaders from places that include ustwo, IKEA, Wolff Olins and Google on how we can change the world through education.
This event will focus on the future of work. We'll look at the role education can play in equipping our workforce with the right skills -- and ultimately, a fairer society.
We'll explore these themes:
Inclusive leadership for a fairer society
Ensure people can bring their whole selves to work
Fast-changing job market necessitates life-long learning
By 2025, half of the jobs won't exist.
Automation of work
McKinsey research suggests that as many as 45% of the activities individuals are paid to perform can be automated by adapting currently demonstrated technologies.
Growing skill mismatches
In 2011, when US unemployment exceeded 9 percent, a survey found that 30% of US companies had positions open for more than six months that they could not fill.
This event is organised by the How to Change the World Meetup, and Learnerbly, a company that's all about helping people be their best selves at work. They help companies who include IDEO, ustwo and Vouchercodes find the best learning opportunities to accelerate the growth of their people.
This event will be facilitated by Learnerbly's Chief Operations Officer Melissa Andrada (who also kickstarted the meetup on how to change the world). Melissa loves to learn and help others learn. When she's not at Learnerbly, she can be found teaching people how to find their job at General Assembly, and organising leadership journeys for creative leaders at Qlue.

Julyan Davey is an education enthusiast who’s fascinated by methods of effective learning. He taught himself programming to get a job in the startup world and learnt Spanish backpacking in South America. He now applies his skills working for NearSt, a startup helping to get people back into the high street by turning shops into mini tech startups.

Julyan will present three big coming technological changes and examine how they will have a huge impact on the future of work. He will challenge us to adapt on every level. As individuals we need to become lifelong learners. Our organisations need to embrace creativity as their core value. And our societies need to become more resilient and better at educating young people for a life of creativity and change.
