Young people meet the policy makers

Lucy was on the Channel 4 News “C4 Class of 2012” panel with David Miliband, Sainsbury’s CEO Justin King, 02 CEO Ronan Dunne and Faisal ISlam.

They talked about what needs to be done by the private sector, government, and educators to help young people starting their careers. The young people who attended were engaged, passionate, and articulate – we need to do a better job of harnessing this talent…

Lucy’s comments were around youth unemployment and investing in the community as a boardroom issue – something companies need to think about at the highest levels for the sake of the economy, the communities in which we operate around the world and indeed the long term health of companies and the labour force.
