Event Details

Much has been written recently and historically about the future of work and schools needing to prepare students for exciting yet nonetheless unpredictable future employment landscapes. Teachers and educational leaders grapple daily with this ambition, how to develop the oft quoted, illusive yet coveted ‘21st century skills’ needed for life beyond school. But are schools fully considering the impact of the gender data gap on the experience of young women in the future and can they fully harness the potential of community contribution in this area? 

During this facilitated discussion, we will consider the considerable and yet unmeasured contribution women make in this area from outside school through parenting, mentoring and leadership. We will consider the:

  • contribution of women in the community 
  • evolution of parenting
  • impact of the gender data gap on young women

In light of the interests in the room, we will break into small groups to discuss what kind of education we would like to see for the next generation, envisioning key features of future educational paradigms, including:

  • Gender equitable use of AI
  • How to empower and maintain creativity 
  • Impactful education on the SDGs

This highly interactive session should appeal to those with any interest in gender equitable education that supports the future of work. Current or aspiring teachers, human resource managers, social entrepreneurs, and policy makers can take this opportunity to learn, discuss and join in a collective reflection on pressing issues for girls and young women. Parents can consider how to support their daughters in a gender data gap landscape. And we can all consider how to contribute to the development of young people, their ambitions, skills and engagement in the future. We look forward to some lively, varied and impactful discussion.
