Forum-led initiatives

The Forum’s New Economy and Society unit hosts five major initiatives that adopt accelerated approaches to education, reskilling, upskilling and better jobs. Each effort is a large scale “systems change” accelerator and aggregator with the ambition to drive change within the initiative as well as become a role model for replication and learning.

Companies have a key role to play when it comes to investing in human capital, including their own workforce, their value chains and their broader community. Several of the platform partners have mobilized resources and influenced a network of stakeholders in their value chains that many in governments and civil society cannot do on their own.
