The vital role of female education leaders in providing human centric and balanced education for the world of tomorrow
With an increased premium on both digital and social-emotion skills in the coming years, we see the gap between education and jobs further widened. The new market is one constantly changing, and when technology seems to be a key focus in this AI digital age, we also recognize the increasing importance of human centric development and balanced education. This is further reinforced by the accelerated COVID-19 pandemic, when ESG (environmental, social and governance) are coming to the fore for businesses thriving to create success based on sustainable principles for our world today and tomorrow. This brings a new purpose for learning and work.
As such, female education leaders today play a vital role in instilling human, cultural and social capital to build a new generation of leaders who are both innovative and empathetic for human flourishing. As we keep ourselves abreast of the new economy and actively engage/equip our young generation to build the right mindset and skills for a new global market, our purpose of being a female education leader also comes to a new height.
