Reimagining Work, the Workplace, and Careers

This program will be hosted by London Business School. The program will take place on November 6, 2019.

This program is for women in the first decade of their careers. This program is also for line and HR executives who are interested in the future of work, leadership, and careers. QUEST Sponsors may send 8 participants to this program.

This program will explore how the changing nature of competition, work, and society is influencing the future of leadership. Today’s trailblazing leaders are charting a new course and are reimagining what leadership should look like, feel like, and be like in this new and incredibly exciting world of work. But many companies are still struggling with how to transform their organizations to adapt to a changing work force. Our work at QUEST and ICEDR is particularly interested in making sure that career opportunities for early career stage female talent are robust and at least equal to the many exciting opportunities that are taking place in workplace redesign. As such, the program will also explore how this new leadership playbook specifically applies to early career women.

But it is not only the organization’s role to create exciting career opportunities. It is up to you, the emerging female leader, as well. To help with this, this interactive, leader-led program will feature stories from senior women executives at leading companies about how they have mastered relationships, taken risks, and raised their hands to lead the charge to help create work environments that are flexible enough to support the unique challenges of leading while female.

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.
