The place and function of work in society is changing dramatically, driven and evidenced by increasingly rapid advances in technology, altered business models, increased labor mobility, migration patterns, aging societies and booming youth populations, among other factors. These powerful drivers in the transformation of work have implications for lives and livelihoods, affecting human security, economic growth and political stability. Shaping and adapting to these megatrends requires multi-disciplinary business and social approaches that mark the work of the nearly 1,500 active Eisenhower Fellows worldwide. More than 2200 leaders in 108 countries have become Eisenhower Fellows since our first program in 1954. Three have been heads of government and more than 100 have served at minister level or above. More than 300 have headed major corporations, from heavy industry to high tech firms. Eisenhower Fellows lead major universities, national media and influential nongovernmental organizations.
Eisenhower Fellowships is hosting a global conference to gather leaders from all sectors to analyze the key drivers shaping the future of work, harnessing the collective knowledge and experience of the EF global network to open channels for cross-border collaboration to contribute thought leadership and real-world solutions to emerging challenges.
This global EF conference, in partnership with the City of Malaga and Malaga Valley, is co-sponsored by two separate EF Country Chapters: Spain and Jordan, working across different regions, united by a common theme, and will put on center stage a dramatic example of collaboration between Eisenhower Fellows across national borders and regions.
