Auckland

5:00pm arrival for 5:30pm start

The New Work Order Salon is your power-packed opportunity to engage with the freshest thinking and research from Jan Owen on the new world of work and its implications for your students and staff, and to hear how leading New Zealand educators, business people and young people are working to take us towards the new life-time learning and career development ecosystem we need. Join the conversation and the action!


The 21C Skills Lab is hosting a series of events to explore these questions on 12 and 13 February in Wellington and Auckland. We are delighted to be hosting Jan Owen, the charismatic Chief Executive Officer of the Foundation for Young Australians, whose New Work Order research based on big data from the Australian employment market is exciting international acclaim (see bio below). We are bringing Jan together with leading New Zealanders:

  • Kerry Topp, Associate Director, Transformation & Innovation at Datacom

  • Komal Mistry, General Manager at Fonterra Ventures


SPEAKER AND PANELLIST BIOGRAPHIES

Jan Owen

Jan is a highly regarded social entrepreneur, innovator, influencer and author who has spent the past 25 years growing Australia’s youth, social enterprise and innovation sectors.

In 2012 she was named Australia’s inaugural Australian Financial Review and Westpac Woman of Influence; in 2014 she received the Doctor of Letters (honoris causa) from the University of Sydney; and was awarded membership to the Order of Australia in 2000. She is the author of Every Childhood Lasts a Lifetime (1996) and The Future Chasers (2014).

Jan is the CEO of the Foundation for Young Australians and YLab, the global youth futures lab. Her lifelong mission is to unleash the potential of young people to lead positive change in the world. Jan’s enlightening, challenging and entertaining presentations are pragmatic as opposed to idealistic, with the aim of transforming the way society talks about and engages with young people – from treating them as a problem to be solved to recognising that young people are contributing to and driving social change.

Check out Jan out on the Educhange podcast or in a recent blog on the design of Education 2.0.
