Saleema Vellani Invited to Moderate Future of Work Panel at the World Bank

Saleema Vellani is the Co-Founder and Chief Operations Officer of Innovazing. She is also Adjunct Professor of Entrepreneurship at Johns Hopkins University and an Innovation Strategy Consultant at the World Bank. Given her incredible work at Innovazing, which strengthens leadership skills among changemakers through coaching and training, and her passion to support women and youth, Saleema was invited to moderate a panel at the World Bank Youth Summit on how to prepare our global youth for the Future of Work.

The panelists included Lesly Goh (Chief Technology Officer at the World Bank Group), Murat Tarimcilar (Professor of Decision Sciences at George Washington University), Ali Siddiq (Chief Operating Officer at Amal Academy), and Catherine Bertini (Distinguished Fellow at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs and Rockefeller Foundation Fellow).

Established in 2013, the World Bank Youth Summit is an annual event held by the World Bank Group that brings over 400 youth from around the world to engage on the most pressing topics facing their generation. The theme for the 2018 Summit was "Unleashing the Power of Human Capital". 

In addition to the panel and supporting the event as a whole, Saleema's team at Innovazing facilitated workshops, including Leadership for Changemakers: Maximize Your Impact and Igniting an Innovative Leadership Mindset Through Improv to cultivate innovative leadership mindsets among young global leaders.
