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

Building the Digitally Fit and Inclusive Workforce of the Future - Today is hosted by PwC.

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.
