Join the GBSN for Energy Transition Impact Community in the next installment of Powering the Energy Transition: A Tale of Two Hemispheres, a multi-part series exploring key elements of the energy transition journey through the lenses of different contexts across the global north and global south.
In Part IV: Skills and Development in Business Education, experts from academia and industry will explore the critical talent needs of a sustainable and low carbon energy economy, as well as the role of business schools in supporting a transitioning workforce. We’ll explore questions such as:
- What new roles are emerging and where are the greatest gaps in availability of talent to fill these new roles?
- What specific knowledge and skills enable individuals trained in traditional disciplines like finance, marketing, and strategy, to be better prepared for careers in this sector?
- What is the current state of the leadership pipeline for the energy sector, at both local and multinational levels?
- How can business schools best support the workforce development, entrepreneurial ecosystem, and organizational strategy insights needed to power the energy transition and sustain economic growth and development?
