Quotes from Stakeholders

Around the world, many employers who already are struggling to fill job vacancies cast a wary eye toward the future. The existing mismatch between youth skills and employer needs threatens to become even wider as Industry 4.0 transforms business and jobs faster than workers can adapt.

Sarah Brown

Executive Chair, Global Business Coalition for Education. President, Theirworld.

Entrepreneurship provides opportunities for youth to bypass traditional barriers to employment. And by supporting entrepreneurship we enable youth to be a powerful part of the solution.

Yemi Babington-Ashaye

President, United People Global. Commissioner, Youth Skills and Innovation Commission

While that may sound dire, leaders and visionaries recognize it as an obligation—even an opportunity—to reconsider how jobs and skills should be aligned, and how potential employees can demonstrate these skills.

Punit Renjen

Deloitte Global CEO

We carry an exciting energy, enthusiasm, and creativity as youth in what we do, thus it is a waste of human capital when these gifts are not tapped in improving businesses, letting potentials lie idle, and putting the current and future world of work in jeopardy.

Nina Mbah

GBC-Education Youth Skills and Innovation Initiative: Youth Network

People do not want to invest in nor work for a company that is not socially responsible. Investing in their current and future workforce by developing skilling, re-skilling, and life-long learning programs is therefore critical and essential.

Shea Gopaul

Founder & executive director, Global Apprenticeship Network

People do not want to invest in nor work for a company that is not socially responsible. Investing in their current and future workforce by developing skilling, re-skilling, and life-long learning programs is therefore critical and essential.

Daniella Foster

Senior director, Global Corporate Responsibility, Hilton

To leave the world a bit better … to know that one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
