Education and employment are the keys to reducing inequality and encouraging development, yet significant barriers to access prevent meaningful change. COVID-19 has had the dual effect of allowing more flexible entry points to learning, while making the technology gap ever wider and exposing deficiencies in the telecommunications system. BCIU is poised to help accelerate the labor transition and ensure that all those along the skills curve can receive proper training and education to help fill roles for the jobs of tomorrow. As the future of work is rapidly changing, we are forging public and private partnerships through convenings that help outline tangible action steps to empower economies by creating inclusive and productive labor forces.


In March 2021 amidst the COVID-19 global education crisis, BCIU hosted the head of education for UNICEF Robert Jenkins for a virtual dialogue on how companies can partner with them on their initiatives to help empower marginalized children and provide them with better access to educational tools.
