A NEW global study was launched on children’s career aspirations by a United Kingdom-based charity organisation to help support children. While the report has already been launched in London, it will also be presented at a breakfast panel in Davos, Switzerland.

The report is also getting attention from the World Economic Forum and other stakeholders.

On Friday, January 19, 2018, a new global study was launched on children’s career aspirations that the organisation has helped support.
While the report has been launched in London, it will also be presented at a breakfast panel in Davos, Switzerland on Thursday January 25, and is getting attention from the World Economic Forum and other stakeholders.
Among other interesting findings in the report based on over 20,000 children’s drawings from around the world, shows that gender stereotyping starts in primary school.
The report, which is expected to be presented to economic and business leaders from around the world in Davos, Switzerland, responds to recent findings by the World Economic Forum that the global gender gap widened in 2017.
‘Drawing the future’ shows that even before we enter the workforce, gender stereotypes have been formed.
The research, carried out by UK-based charity, Education and Employers, covers the UK (13,000 respondents), Australia, Belarus, Bangladesh, China, Columbia, Indonesia, Pakistan, Romania, Russia, Switzerland, Uganda, Zambia and others.
Education and Employers works with schools and matches them with professionals who are willing to give an hour of their time to meet with school children to expose them to different career opportunities and broaden their horizons.
Katarina Wallin Bureau, chief operating officer of Burson-Marsteller EMEA, will be joining the panel discussion on the report in Switzerland, where she will also discuss BM’s Advantage Women offering that is focused on helping organisations take full advantage of the benefits associated with closing the gender gap and creating more opportunities for women to rise as leaders.
Remember, children are our future. Until next week, please stay safe and keep clean.
