13 March 17:00-18:30
Join Violet Lo for a Scholar Talk: Never too young to lead! More and more cities are hosting conferences for “better cities”, “cities for tomorrow”, etc and campaigning for global partnerships for a sustainable future. Clearly, business has a major role to play, but would it be sufficient just to facilitate “shared-value creation”? Creating jobs alone is not enough to tackle the inequality and the extreme wealth gap issue. We need economic growth to reach everyone! We need our business to be inclusive and purpose-driven. We need to develop next generation leaders who are ethical, purpose-driven and global–minded.
We need a diversified global inclusive business ecosystem, where we can empower the next generation to create inclusive opportunities and bring purpose to business! If you are purpose-driven, have leadership qualities, and want to make a difference with your skills in STEM+, computing, data science, machine learning, arts & music, storytelling, photography or filming skills, entrepreneurship and sports, please come and join us! Dr Violet Lo founded the Inclusive Business Lab, aiming to build a diversified ecosystem for creating inclusive opportunities and developing the next generation of purpose-driven, ethical & global minded leaders of tomorrow.
