Geneva, Switzerland, 25 May 2021 Media sign-up is now open for the World Economic Forum’s second Jobs Reset Summit on 1-2 June. The virtual two-day event will engage 700+ leading stakeholders to advance the interrelated growth, jobs, skills and equity agendas.

The choices made by policy-makers, business leaders, workers and learners today will shape our societies for years to come. At this critical crossroads, leaders must consciously, proactively and urgently lay the foundations of a new social contract, rebuilding economies so they provide opportunity for all.

The Jobs Reset Summit 2021 will provide a timely platform for laying these foundations, working beyond silos and across stakeholders, on four interrelated themes:

  • Economic Growth, Revival and Transformation
  • Work, Wages and Job Creation
  • Education, Skills and Learning
  • Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Social Justice

Here are some of the highlighted sessions and issues that will be addressed:

Members of the media who sign up as reporting press will have exclusive access to webcast sessions, media sessions, networking opportunities, and embargoed reports and company announcements.

The World Economic Forum’s first Jobs Reset Summit in October 2020 convened more than 1,000 leaders from government, business and civil society to shape a new agenda for growth, jobs, skills and equity. It followed the Forum’s January 2020 launch of the Reskilling Revolution online platform to create better jobs, skills and education for 1 billion people by 2030.
