Preparing Gen-Z students for the Workforce

Why generational diversity is top of the agenda for CEOs


Thursday 9th December | 9:30am – 10:30am (GMT)



While generational differences have historically been overlooked, there’s a growing school of thought that they will now play a major role in either stagnating progress or catalysing change in the business landscape. The corporate world is in desperate need of both the experience of older generations and the energy and social mindedness of today’s youth.


Business leaders are making generational diversity a key item on their DE&I agenda – understanding that seamlessly melding today's talent with building tomorrow's workforce is critical to success.


Author and global strategist Rachele Focardi, and Dimitar Stanimiroff, General Manager EMEA, Handshake, will team up to talk about how to build a productive multigenerational workforce. With a foot in both the business world and academia, the pair can talk about:


-How Gen-Z engages with employers, what they’re looking for and what they expect in their search for a job

-The skills the next generation needs to effectively contribute to a diverse workforce

-How employers can better collaborate with universities to meet their needs and generate a sustainable, skilled, talent pool


We look forward to seeing you there!
