18-30+ Next Gen and Vital Conversation Events about the Future of Work
Our “Next Generation” is key to the future of Southern Georgian Bay. These individuals are, or will be, our social entrepreneurs, health care providers, teachers, and leaders in new fields. They are important to the new emerging economy given that they are the most educated generation ever. And, they add youthful energy and innovative thinking to our communities that benefits all.
We need to create more platforms for this generation to be heard, so that they can help shape our collective future.
The Institute is partnering with Community Foundation Grey Bruce on two Vital Conversations taking place on October 20 and 22 on readiness for a changing work environment, economic and holistic wellbeing, and the impacts of COVID-19.
Please share this registration link with friends and family, especially those in the 18-30 age range.
AND, if you are older than 30, have something to contribute to this conversation, and want to learn more about the issues this cohort is facing, we have been assured that you are welcome to attend!
These Vital Conversations on the changing nature of work will be facilitated by Melri Wright and Mike Wright of Ledge Leadership. The first meeting on Tuesday, October 20 will take a World Café style — sharing knowledge and creating possibilities for action built on the notion of group intelligence. Participants will hear from inspiring local guest speakers and will be part of small group discussions. The second meeting on Thursday, October 22, presented in collaboration with Georgian College Centre for Changemaking and Social Innovation, will utilize an online design thinking platform that encourages visual collaborative thinking. Participants can join one meeting or sign up for both.
These Vital Conversations will inform Institute programming and the Community Foundation Grey Bruce’s upcoming Vital Signs Report.
Please participate by registering now!
