3 Research-Based Strategies to Support the Leaders of Tomorrow in the Midst of COVID-19
About the Webinar
When we have a greater number of young people throughout the world who are prepared to lead, we improve our ability to build a thriving global community. The next generation of workers can bring unique insights, skills, and commitment that can translate into growth, equity, and impact for organizations and societies. But in times of unprecedented change and disruption, do the leaders of tomorrow have the support, resources, and desire to step into formal or informal leadership roles? What can organizations and communities do to foster work environments that facilitate emerging leaders realizing their full potential?
To develop a deeper understanding of the leaders of tomorrow and their concerns, our research team partnered with 2 global leadership organizations — Y20, the youth forum of the G20, and the Asia Europe Foundation — to hear from young workers across more than 65 countries. Participants reflect different sectors, leader levels, nationalities, social identities, and work experiences, providing a broad view of global leadership.
In this webinar, we’ll share findings from our new research report, It’s You, Not Them: Why Emerging Leaders Need Your Support to Succeed, and reveal insights from our research with over 16,000 Gen Z and Millennial workers (ages 18 to 30) around the world. With data from 10,000+ emerging leaders collected during the initial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and an additional 6,000 more responses in 2021, this timely perspective from the leaders of tomorrow offers insights that your organization cannot afford to miss.
