CAPES’ Bev Jack speaks at #WEC2021online

CAPES Exco member Bev Jack is a proud participant in the World Employment Confederation 2021 Conference.

In a recent report, according to PriceWaterhouse Coopers, it is going to take the global community at least two hundred and sixty seven years (267) to close the gender gap in economic participation and opportunity, as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

To realise the vision of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, we need to transform the societies in which we live, to open up paths to inclusive economic growth and development.

Globally, transformation is etched in all sectors in the economy.  In many countries, including my own, South Africa’s transformation agenda is viewed as the catalyst to address socio-economic problems, including the triple challenges of unemployment, poverty and inequality.

As labour market intermediaries, the staffing industry is not only ideally positioned to lobby and advocate such change, but to embrace, champion, promote and enable the implementation of transformation strategies.

Looking forward to meaningful dialogue at the Conference, as we collectively engage on building a more diverse, equal and inclusive world of work.
