There has been no more important time for our industry to unite and mobilise in order to adapt to the impacts of Covid-19, and young leaders are forming a critical part of that response.
As such, One Young World and Chartered Accountants Worldwide are thrilled to confirm a new event series under the Finance&Business2030 umbrella, ‘Building Resilience: A #FinBiz2030 Series’.
A recent OYW survey found that two thirds of young people surveyed (64%) did not believe that their country’s leadership is doing enough to support young people during this time of crisis.
15% noted mental health as the most worrying concern, behind health (22.7%) and employment opportunities (20.79%). Encouragingly, 87% of respondents were given reasons to be hopeful for the future.
As part of the Series, and inspired by the survey, we will bring you insight and experience from young leaders and experts that will equip you with the knowledge and confidence to lead through this uncertain time. These online events are intended to be global, interactive, inspirational and practical.
They will last one hour and will cover a range of topics, starting with a first event focusing on mental health and wellbeing.
Building Resilience Webinars
Building Resilience: The business case for doing good
Join us to learn more about the business case for the sustainable development agenda, and hear from leaders who have innovated responsible business solutions, and contributed to a changing culture around positive impact.
Co-hosted by International Federation of Accountants, American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, Chartered Institute of Management Accountants, Chartered Accountants Worldwide and One Young World.
As young people enter the workforce, they are hungry for opportunities to learn, contribute and lift others alongside them to create a positive impact. With this event, we showcase what is possible and what real leadership looks like.
The economic crisis touching every part of the world is forcing organisations to re-examine their values and broader purpose. Join us as we hear from leaders who will tell us why young people must have the knowledge and resilience to address the challenges confronting our professional and personal lives.
Join us as we learn from those who have lived those experiences, lifted others in communities who needed them, and are leveraging new innovations to architect a more inclusive world. Leave this event with the means and motivation to address inequality in your personal and professional lives.
During this edition of the Building Resilience Series, you will hear from leaders whose hardship emboldened their purpose, enhanced their focus and led them to brighter days. You will leave this session with the fuel necessary to drive your optimism and resilience for the future.
