Shaping the Future of Education, Gender and Work

High levels of global unemployment and the rapidly changing nature of work present a growing labourmarket crisis, threatening livelihoods and exacerbating inequality and social tensions. In 2013, according to the ILO, 213 million people around the world were unemployed. If current trends continue, global unemployment is set to rise further.
At the same time, employers are reporting difficulties in finding talent and many positions remain vacant,which is indicative of the growing mismatch between available and needed skills.
