This event will feature high profile panelists talking about everything from AI/automation, diversity in HR practices, addressing the skills gap, and alternative business models.
What are some of the trends currently defining the new world of work in Canada, and what does our future look like? What opportunities can be seized to build more competitive, prosperous, and inclusive organizations?
This mini-conference, presented in partnership with Deloitte Canada, will feature panel discussions and presentations by representatives from Deloitte, Brookfield, BC Federation of Labour, LinkedIn, Futurpreneur, Vancity, RBC, Briteweb, Wavefront, and more.
As part of its 2018 Community Summit, Brave New Work, SFU Public Square is proud to present, in partnership with Vancity, an evening with Van Jones and Anne-Marie Slaughter.
Automation, artificial intelligence, and globalization are changing the nature of work and what we do to earn a living. While some look to these changes to improve our quality of life, others foresee worker displacement and increased inequality. Many of us are struggling to understand what actions we can take as individuals and as a society to thrive, or at least survive, in the new world of work.
CBC’s Laura Lynch will moderate a conversation with Van Jones and Anne-Marie Slaughter, two leading commentators on the American economy, discussing the role that citizens, governments and civil society can play in shaping the future of work. They will explore the challenges ahead, as well as how these challenges might be addressed through green jobs, emergent industries, education and public policy.
Vancouver’s 2nd LinkedIn Local meet-up is officially happening at Science World on Monday 19th February 6:30pm-10:30pm!
If you’ve not heard of a LinkedIn Local before, it’s a movement that has spread like wildfire over the last 9 months with LinkedIn users organising their own get-togethers with the intention of “meeting the person behind the profile”. Now, this movement has reached over 150 cities round the world, including our own Vancouver.
At the Science World meet-up, there will be a range of speakers focusing on two key topics: Firstly, “The Role of Failure in Entrepreneurial Success” and secondly, “Ways Blockchain Technology Will Change The World”.
A light finger-food buffet is included within the ticket price (currently $10 for the early-bird rate) and there’ll be plenty of opportunity for networking with the other 200 attendees. There’ll even be a series of “Meet The Experts” stations with inspirational leaders to chat with about subjects like branding, making waves in the corporate world and how to hustle on LinkedIn and in business as a student.
