Zabeen will continue to discuss themes related to our shared purpose in helping people unlock their potential, achieve career success and build inclusive prosperity. Key themes:

  • The Future of Work is Human. We are boldly re-imagining “work from anywhere,” lifelong learning, employee agency and responsibility, diversity and inclusion.
  • The Future of Leadership is Human. Trust through transparency and authenticity, empathy, inclusion, compassion.
  • The Future of Prosperity is Human. This is a pivotal moment for us to grasp with passion and courage. Our challenge is to create Work that Works for All, establishing inclusive prosperity to power our country for generations.
  • This is your time to multiply your impact. We will talk about how to hold and start these conversations.

At a unique time when we are more aware of our interconnectedness but also our inequities, join us to hear Zabeen’s call to action: “We are instruments of change. We have agency to turn this moment into a movement. Leadership is not a title, it is action and behaviours.”
