Building Resilience:
A #FinBiz2030 Series

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.
