More and more cities are promoting “better cities”, “cities for tomorrow” etc. and campaigning for global partnerships for a sustainable future, but would it be sufficient just to facilitate “shared-value creation”? To tackle the challenges on 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; and 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 potentials and wanna make a difference with your potential skills (in STEM+, computing, data science, machine learning, communications, designs, arts & music, storytelling, photography or filming skills, entrepreneurship and sports etc), please come and join us and know more about the Global Inclusive Leadership Program (GILP) which aims at nurturing leaders who would like to make a difference! In addition to the learning opportunities in STEM subjects, the GILP will bring you the opportunities to engage in high-level thinking skills, Training the Trainers Leadership Roundtables, Global Inclusive Leadership Weeks for selected participants and more…
