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.
Every year at the BCIU Eisenhower Awards Gala, we recognize leaders who have made exceptional contributions to social responsibility, sustainability, and the growth and development of humankind. This year, we presented the 2020 Eisenhower Global Citizenship Award to Henry Kravis, Co-founder and Co-Chief Executive of KKR & Co., in recognition of his decades of work enhancing progress around the globe.
