Advancing prosperous, inclusive and equitable economies and societies that provide opportunity for everyone to fulfil their potential.
The twin forces of globalization and technology are transforming our economies, workplaces, communities and families. In advanced and emerging economies, decelerating growth, job disruption, rising inequality and a broken social contract are creating unrest and instability. Yet there has never been a better time to mobilize technology and to unleash the human capability to address these challenges and shape a new socio-economic system that provides opportunity for all.
Our Platform enables leaders to co-create a new vision on three interconnected areas: growth and competitiveness; education, skills and work; and equality and inclusion. Working together, stakeholders deepen their understanding of complex issues, shape new models and standards and drive scalable, collaborative action for systemic change.
Over 150 of the world’s leading companies and 100 international, civil society and academic organizations currently work through the Platform to promote new approaches to competitiveness in the 4IR economy; deploy education and skills for tomorrow’s workforce; build a new pro-worker and pro-business agenda for jobs; and integrate equality and inclusion into the new economy, aiming to reach a billion people with improved economic opportunities.
