Global Apprenticeship Network (GAN) Leaders Unite in Davos for Skills, Jobs and Youth

The GAN hosted a high-level session held within the framework of this year's 48th World Economic Forum (WEF) Annual Meeting in Davos. Moderated by Rebecca Blumenstein, The New York Times Deputy Managing Editor, the session brought together top executives from private companies such as Accenture, The Adecco Group, UBS Group AG, Microsoft, JPMorgan Chase, and Nestlé with partners including the US Department of Labor (DOL), ILO, IOE, and B20/G20 to advance the 20 x 20 x 20 GAN Challenge – calling for more action to increase opportunities up to 20 million for the young and unemployed by 2020, through 20 national networks and 20 GAN Members. Daniel Funes de Rioja, former IOE President and current B20 Chair under the Argentinian G20 Presidency, as an Honorary Guest, highlighted apprenticeships "as a great tool to get the right skills needed by the labour market." With the future of work, automation, artificial intelligence and the digital economy as key themes at Davos, CEOs and executives from the GAN released an article on the WEF Agenda in the run-up to the session on apprenticeship in the age of AI.
