About the event

BridgingTheGap to Youth

The BridgingTheGap to Youth Forum connects young leaders with high-profile decision makers—from business, community and government sectors—to bridge opportunity gaps. Programming is designed to prepare young talent for the future of jobs and foster youth-led innovation to solve community challenges.
One hundred young leaders under the age of 35 will have the unique opportunity to participate in mastermind sessions with executive mentors and policymakers to co-create solutions to pressing issues including: wellbeing, gender equality, future of work, climate, and digital inclusion and innovation.

We'll be hosting a new event September 2019
