Today, talent is one of the most urgent challenges on the minds of country leaders, CEOs, and founders. Cities produce 85% of our global GDP, and ensuring they are attracting and retaining a strong and growing talent pool, is vital to success as we continue to move towards a sustainable and net zero future.
City leaders have proactively taken the lead on initiatives around talent leadership, readiness, and inclusion. This is being addressed through the development of comprehensive urban talent strategies, by identifying the gaps in talent infrastructure inhibiting digital and green transformation, sustainable innovation, and entrepreneurism.
Join us on Tuesday, September 13 at 15:00 GST, in partnership with Masdar City and the Global Parliament of Mayors Talent CitiesTM, for an in-depth discussion exploring talent gaps and the opportunities they offer for achieving economic growth and net zero implementation at the urban level.
Joining us will be H.E. Grace Mary Mugasa, Minister of State, Uganda, H.E. Ricardo Rio, Mayor of Braga, Portugal and World Mayor of Sustainability, and Alby Bocanegra, Vice President of Global City Partnerships at Mastercard and Advisor to the World Economic Forum.
