Unlocking Canada's Digital Potential

September 28, 10:00 - 11:30 am ET

Free hybrid seminar, open to DPI affiliates
Shaw Centre, Room 206/208, Second Floor

Breakfast and check-in will start at 9:15 am ET for in person attendees.

In this thought-provoking talk, Melissa, an award-winning entrepreneur and technology educator, delves into the pressing question of how we can prepare individuals for jobs that don't yet exist, jobs that are radically different from their current roles, or even for technologies that have yet to be invented. Drawing from her extensive experience as the Co-Founder of Canada Learning Code, Melissa brings a unique perspective to the table.

While lifelong learning is often touted as the solution, Melissa challenges this conventional wisdom, reminding us that we cannot solve the challenges of the future with the same thinking that created them. To thrive in our ever-evolving workplaces, we need more than just continuous learning; we need to unlearn the old ways and embrace a new model for reskilling.

Join Melissa as she explores a compelling vision for a future where Canadians not only adapt to the jobs and technologies of tomorrow but thrive in them. This talk is a call to action, inviting you to be part of a transformative journey towards a more resilient and forward-thinking workforce.
