With the advances in new technologies, every industry faces varying degrees of digital disruption. While improving our digital experiences enhances the way we do business, the lines between technology and humanity are becoming blurred.


How can Africa enhance its opportunities to prosper in the digital economy?


Although technology is key to digitization, talent is a crucial factor in the continent’s digital future if Africa is to achieve sustainable growth and innovation. With this in mind, Africa’s untapped talent potential lies in its youth population, which is expected to reach nearly one billion by 2050, and the active participation of its female population in the digital economy. If talent is Africa’s currency, business leaders must look to human resources for strategic approaches that will harness the power of human capital and shape Africa’s future in the digital age.


Join us and 100+ other senior HR professionals as we discuss how focusing on diversity and inclusion, future of work and employee experience can unlock sustainable futures for businesses operating in Africa and its employees.


Learn. Connect. Grow.
