    “Open for business?” How to create opportunities in entrepreneurship for everyone

    “Open for business?” How to create opportunities in entrepreneurship for everyone

    Not everyone has an equal opportunity to transform their ideas into a business. There could be an additional 9 million people starting and managing new business in the European Union (EU) – and 35 million across OECD countries – if everyone was as active in business creation as core age men (30-49 years old). David Halabisky, Policy Analyst at the OECD Centre for Entrepreneurship and SMEs, Regions and Cities speaks with Shayne MacLachlan on how harnessing the untapped potential of “the missing entrepreneurs” can uncover new ideas, create jobs and contribute to economic growth, which are central to plans for a strong COVID-19 recovery.

    Host: Shayne MacLachlan
    Guest: David Halabisky, Policy Analyst at the OECD Centre for Entrepreneurship and SMEs, Regions and Cities
    Producer: Robin Allison Davis

    Helping young people navigate the future of work

    Helping young people navigate the future of work

    The OECD, in partnership with IBM, recently conducted a social media poll, asking young people about how well prepared they feel to join the world of work, how confident they are about their future paths and what concerns them about education and jobs in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. In this episode, the OECD’s Anthony Mann and IBM’s Lydia Logan discuss insights from the poll and why career guidance and real-world work experiences are more important for young people than ever.

    Education equity and the lessons of the COVID-19 pandemic

    Education equity and the lessons of the COVID-19 pandemic

    The COVID-19 pandemic forced school closures in nearly all countries in 2020, with as much as 55 in-person learning days lost for young children and as many as 100 days lost for high school students. The impact of this disproportionately affected those from disadvantaged backgrounds, who were more likely to lack the resources for effective remote learning. The need to strengthen educational opportunities is not new, but the impact of COVID-19 on learning has made this challenge even more pressing. Marie-Helene Doumet, senior analyst for education and skills at the OECD, discusses lessons learned from the pandemic and what governments can do to support equity in education.
