This session is focused on discussing the Future of Work and explores pathways to careers in the Digital Age.

According to US-based management consulting firm Korn Ferry, there will be a global shortage of more than 85 million tech workers, representing $8.5 trillion in lost annual revenue. The research further shows that  the United States and Russia are expected to be short of 6 million workers each, while China could face a deficit of 12 million workers. Other economies expected to be hit hardest are Brazil, Indonesia, and Japan, facing shortages of up to 18 million workers apiece.
 
This shortage is expected to become more acute in the coming years as technology continues to play a pivotal role across industries and every aspect of business. The demand for highly-skilled tech workers would keep increasing as there continues to be a deficit in supply.  

How can young Africans tap into these opportunities of the Future of Work and how can they unlock a path to prosperity for themselves?

Our panel will deep dive into:
[1] Exploring opportunities across sectors and industries in the Digital Age
[2] Tips and tricks to choosing a career path
[3] The role of transferable skills in your chosen career path.
Charting your learning pathway.
[4] Finding tools and resources to learn online
[5] Taking advantage of Tech-focused student Loans to Upskill
