On 21 July 2020, over 60 diverse and engaged minds gathered virtually to start a powerful movement to find solutions to the global skills crisis. Leaders from across business, government, accademia and charities collaborated to make a difference, sharing insights, experiences and making personal commitments to champion the upskilling agenda through:

  • Personal upskilling: Acquiring the skills needed to lead in this “new world”
  • Organisational change: Helping to drive effective change around upskilling their own organisations
  • Social impact: Ensuring we are having a positive impact on wider society

How we can work together to drive positive change

Perspectives from the community

The resounding impact of COVID-19 was to stop us talking about upskilling and force us to get on and do it.

Our young people are in a precarious situation. We need to help them develop the skills they need for the future.

We want to create a burning platform for the skills agenda, creating a case for change and drawing attention to this issue so that true action can be implemented.

By expanding opportunities into disadvantaged communities, we can have a real, lasting impact.

Fusion skills – not soft skills or academic skills, but a combination of both – are the future.

The resounding impact of COVID-19 was to stop us talking about upskilling and force us to get on and do it.
