IE Alumni Women’s Network & Women4Impact will lead a 2 hour workshop for IE Business School Alumni in Saudi Arabia to bring to light some new solutions or ideas to the challenges related with the future of work in a post-pandemic world.
More than a year ago the pandemic took us on a detour and we all felt challenged. On the one hand, happy to be tech savvy, but on the other hand so many unknowns. There is no better moment than now to take a step back and increase our awareness about the new landscape of the Future of Work and the ways to better navigate it.
We all have experienced the incredible effects of the pandemic and how it is accelerating underlying trends, disrupting the way we work. What will be the future of work? How widespread will the impact be? How do you find solutions for these global challenges, identify upcoming threats AND take advantage of amazing opportunities for innovation?
The collaboration aims to expand the horizon of the attendees and help them understand all of the possibilities that the problems in this extremely complex new world present.
We believe that the most vital step in addressing these issues is to reflect on what ways these elements may be relevant to us as actors in any industry or work environment over both the short and the long terms.
Register HERE to receive your invitation to join the virtual conference! This event is open to all IE University Alumni in Saudi Arabia.
