Diplomatic Courier, STEMconnector, and Global Action Platform to host global forum
WASHINGTON, Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Why are global businesses struggling to fill key jobs when 200 million people are unemployed?
On January 14, 2014, the Diplomatic Courier, in collaboration with the STEMconnector and the CumberlandCenter's Global Action Platform, will convene "The World In 2050: Talent Mobility and the Future of Jobs," a global forum on January 14, 2014 from 8:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. at the National Press Club. Follow the buzz on Twitter @diplocourier, #2050jobs.
"Businesses and governments across the world are beginning to come to terms with the new reality of the post-financial crisis era. In response to the crisis, today there is an emphasis on constraints, not growth. At the same time, there is a critical need to unleash growth, to leverage emerging trends in technology, market needs, and society to expand enterprise and economic opportunity. Success in breaking through to a new wave of growth and prosperity will depend increasingly on human and social capital," comments Ana C. Rold, Editor-in-Chief, Diplomatic Courier.
Over six intense hours, industry leaders, technologists, journalists, and the public will tackle key issues at the heart of this world's talent competition.
