Strengthening Youth Resilience in Conflict-Affected Areas Through Collective Impact

Education Development Center, FHI 360, Creative Associates International

In areas where conflict and violence are present, youth are prone to be victims and/or perpetrators of violence. In these contexts, youth economic opportunity programs are compelled to create responses that not only do no harm, but also strengthen youth resilience in a way that minimizes the impact of violence. This session covers collective impact (CI) approaches for implementing and sustaining youth workforce and livelihoods projects within fragile environments, with the end goal of strengthening youth resilience.

Building Awareness, Nurturing Skills, and Closing the Confidence Gap: How to Help Young Women Join and Thrive in the Transportation Sector

Nathan Associates, Inc.; U.S. Department of Transportation; Ministry of Transport, Vietnam

Although transportation supplies 10-25% of jobs around the world, representation of women in the sector typically falls below 20%. Women are far less likely than men to work in each of the major transport modes – road/surface, rail, air, and maritime – and those with jobs tend to fill the few roles traditionally dominated by women. Young women are similarly scarce along career-paths in infrastructure design, construction, and maintenance; transportation technology; and logistics.
