9:30 am – 10:45 am
Plenary, Level 3, Shaw Centre
CERIC is introducing a very special plenary session, a World Cafe on Tuesday, January 28 from 9:30 am – 10:45 am – with the help of RBC. A World Cafe is a structured conversational process based on small group discussions and crowdsourcing that taps into our collective intelligence.
Through open dialogue, we’ll tackle one of the major issues of our day: Overwhelmingly, Canadian youth are feeling anxious and unprepared to enter the workforce. But there’s a silver lining – they also possess an underlying optimism and excitement for the future. A recent RBC survey of more than 2,000 Canadians aged 15-24 found that youth are feeling hopeful, but nervous about their future employment prospects. Canada’s prosperity is directly linked to our ability to prepare the next generation to succeed in a fast-changing global economy. If young people succeed, we all succeed.
However, preparing youth for the changing world of work isn’t something any of us can do alone. How can we co-create with governments, educators, youth-serving organizations, and companies large and small to foster change that makes a real difference? How can we equip allies including parents, guidance counsellors and teachers who want to provide support and make a difference? In short, how can we help empower youth for the jobs of tomorrow?
In this World Cafe, you’ll experience learning and discovery in an entirely new way through creative thinking and the power of your peers. We’ll access the wisdom of 1,200 plus Cannexus attendees to tackle these critical questions. Join this all-attendee discussion to connect around common concerns, hear personal insights and develop solutions together.
CERIC is dedicated to the advancement of education and research in the field of career counseling and career development. Cannexus is presented by CERIC and supported by The Counselling Foundation of Canada
and a broad network of supporting organizations.
