Intergenerational Leadership Dialogue: Business Without Borders
Tuesday, 1 November 2022 11:00 to 12:30
Regional integration is often seen as an important mechanism for driving economic growth and development in the South African Development Community (SADC) region. However, within regional supply and trade value chains, women, youth and the LGBTIQIA+ community are the most vulnerable to barriers due to factors such as the gap in trade financing, gender disparities, institutional and systemic violence and a lack of capacity and advocacy. In response, the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) stresses the importance of regional integration based on the conceptual idea of ‘Business Without Borders’.
The National Business Initiative (NBI) invites you to an upcoming Intergenerational Leadership Dialogue: Business Without Borders, on Tuesday, 1 November 2022.
The COVID-19 Pandemic necessitated critical discussions around reimagining regional integration and specifically the role of the Private Sector in ensuring regional outcomes under the strategic banner of ‘Business Without Borders.’ This includes how the Private Sector is well-positioned to deal with systemic and institutional barriers for women, youth and the LGBTIQIA+ community within their networks.
This Intergenerational Leadership discussion will focus on:
- The importance of regional integration, trade, and Private Sector engagement for an inclusive regional ecosystem.
- The importance of trade financing by private institutions as enablers of the ecosystem, that is inclusive of women, youth, and members of the LGBTIQIA+ community.
- The role of business and Government in ensuring there is collaboration and capacity building for sustainability.
- Policy considerations for the Private and Public Sectors in relation to the AfCFTA.
The NBI developed the Intergenerational Leadership Dialogues as a platform to critically explore how workplaces engage generational differences as an important aspect of transformation and equity. These discussions are intended to elevate the voices of young people at work, facilitate innovative thinking, and reimagine leadership.
Join us for this important discussion as we unpack regional integration as a mechanism for driving economic growth, development, and inclusion.
