An invitation to IOE members around the world

IOE is joining forces with the Confederation of Asia-Pacific Employers (CAPE) and the ASEAN Confederation of Employers (ACE) to organise this global Summit, with the support of the European Union.

It's time to register for this joint initiative, which will aim to:

  • Strengthen the capacity of Employer and Business Membership Organisations (EBMOs) to advocate for policies that enhance and support "future of work" readiness activities; to review measures that are already working;  to identify the policies that need to be improved in terms of their focus on anticipating skills needs, and upskilling and reskilling workforces to meet the challenges and opportunities arising from the rapid pace of technological, demographic and environmental disruption being faced by businesses in all regions of the world, albeit in different ways; 
  • Provide a venue and opportunity to develop EBMO cooperation in global and regional debates on "future of work" policies.
  • Build on IOE's established expertise in the "future of work"arena, as seen, inter alia, in the joint report with ILO entitled "CHANGING BUSINESS and opportunities for Employer and Business Membership Organisations" and IOE's participation in the negotiation and drafting of the historic ILO Centenary Declaration on the Future of Work

With a view to ensuring a diverse mix of participants and a truly global EBMO exchange on the issues under discussion, IOE will facilitate the participation of a limited number of EBMOs who could not otherwise attend, 

You can access the draft agenda via the link in the Resources section of this communication.

Please register via the form, also accessible in the Resources section, by 10 January 2020, indicating your interest in being considered for financial support!   If you have any questions regarding organisational matters, please contact Ms Caroline Balikungeri; for other matters, please contact either Ms Akustina Morni or Ms Rita Yip.
