Futuremakers Forum Discussion Series

The Futuremakers Forum brings stakeholders together to build partnerships and create opportunities focused on young people. It is part of Futuremakers by Standard Chartered, a global initiative to tackle inequality and promote greater economic inclusion.

Collective effort is needed to accelerate progress toward Sustainability Development Goal 8: to increase opportunities for employment, reduce the gender pay gap and reduce reliance on informal, insecure work. The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to widen the inequality gap, increasing the imperative for sectors to come together to act.
