GBSN Members are Invited to July’s Collab: Workforce Development in the Humanitarian Sector

The July Collab will feature a discussion with Pam Steele, the Supply Chain Transformation Director for PSA. PSA is a management consultancy specializing in supply chain transformation and workforce capacity development in the health sector in low- and middle-income countries.  

Pam has first-hand experience in how the humanitarian sector is challenged by limited access to skilled labor despite high levels of unemployment, primarily due to:

  • Rapid change within the humanitarian sector, its key players, and operations
  • Needs for updating professional skills, fueled by technological change
  • Insufficient access to educational opportunities to prepare individuals for humanitarian sector roles

Join the July Collab to explore the role of business schools in developing the humanitarian workforce of the future.

We will explore questions like:

  • How can business schools be proactive in combating this workforce discrepancy and improving workforce sustainability?
  • Why is attention to gender and inclusion in leadership so crucial to workforce development in the humanitarian sector, and how can we do so?
  • What is the importance of teaching students to identify actual beneficiaries and their needs?
  • What roles do business schools play in preparing students to create proactive humanitarian solutions?
