Oxford Conclave 2024

Envisioning The Future of Work:
Will Our Graduates Be Prepared?

Rhodes House and Ballol College
University of Oxford
September 1 – 3, 2024

The 20th-anniversary convening of The Oxford Conclave will focus on projected changes in the world of work and how our institutions are preparing students for this dynamic future. Participating presidents and vice chancellors will share best practices and insights from they own institutions while learning from experts at the Oxford Martin School’s program on The Future of Work and the Oxford Education Department’s Centre for Skills, Knowledge & Organizational Performance. Discussion topics will include:

  • The changing nature of work and its implications for career development programs and curricular innovation.
  • How technology, including artificial intelligence, will accelerate change and redefine professional life.
  • Vocational discernment: supporting students in finding meaning and purpose in a fast-changing world.
  • Generation Z: How they drive change with radically different career expectations and benefit from a growing talent shortage.
  • The future of the college and university presidency.  What new skills and knowledge will leaders need in the years ahead?
