Forging the Future of Jobs: A Conversation with Guy Ryder, Director General of the ILO

Middle East - Audio

The world faces complex challenges posed by a growing and aging population, forced migration, persistent poverty, urbanization, and a series of technological disruptions impacting labor. The world needs 600 million new jobs over the next 15 years just to keep up with current demand. If channeled correctly, population growth could lead to a demographic dividend. Otherwise, this wave of human energy will be lost. The adage remains true: the best social program (and best national security policy) is a job. Institutions like the International Labor Organization (ILO) have many roles to play in this changing world: agenda setter, capacity builder, convener, and trusted partner. A tri-partite organization made up of government, labor, and the private sector, the ILO seeks to bridge differences and build a common approach. The ILO was stood up in the belief that societies are interdependent and that labor unions need thriving businesses that, in turn, want clear rules of the game and a productive and happy workforce. As the ILO approaches 100 years of service, it has formed a Global Commission on the Future of Work. The Global Commission has convened several national dialogues seeking to understand the future of work and the changing roles of diverse stakeholders in society. Please join us for a discussion with Guy Ryder, the Director-General of the ILO as we discuss the role of the ILO in this changing context. This event is made possible by generous support from the International Labor Organization.
