Workforce Forward Morning Roundtable - Creating Space for Youth in the Workforce
Session Description

In this session we’ll see youth and industry professionals come together sharing what’s needed and what’s available to help our future generation achieve their dreams outside of bias or preconceived ideas. By nurturing the development of talent at a much younger age and creatively thinking about mentorship programs and internships; academia, corporate Canada and communities can help create a generation of youth that is highly trained and ready for the workforce.

“It’s essential that we create space for Indigenous youth to participate in national conversations about economic reconciliation if we hope to establish the sustained momentum needed to address and correct the growing economic gap existing between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians... I am certain the lived experiences, insights and unique outlooks of our 2023 Forward Summit Youth Delegation will provide inspiration and hope to all industry partners and conference participants in attendance.”
